Cape Town - SA Rugby CEO Jurie Roux confirmed on Monday that Rassie Erasmus (GM: Rugby) has accepted a new position as director of rugby at Munster in Ireland.

Erasmus, a former Springbok captain, has led the Rugby Department for the past four years, introducing a number of new structures and innovations.

“I’d like to thank Rassie for the massive contribution he has made in establishing the Rugby Department and ensuring SA Rugby remain leaders on and off the field,” said Roux.

“It will be difficult to replace Rassie, but we’ll make an appointment in due course. The Rugby Department is functioning extremely well with experts at all levels ensuring the department runs smoothly on a daily basis.

“Hopefully this will not be the end of Rassie’s contribution to rugby in South Africa. He’s done so much, as a player, team manager and coach for various teams in South Africa, and in the last four years at SA Rugby. We’d like to wish him well for his future endeavours.”

Erasmus will take up his new position following the Springboks’ home series against Ireland in June.
