Coaching career:

2007: Technical Advisor - Springboks
2008-2010: WP and Stormers Coach

Regarded as one of South Africa’s leading loose forwards, Erasmus’ terrific skills, work rate and unflagging commitment has been an inspiration to both the Cats and the Springboks, although he was strangely ignored by outgoing Bok coach Harry Viljoen.

He captained the Cats to a Super 12 semifinal berth in 2000. He made his Test debut against the Lions in 1997, before leading the Boks against the Wallabies in Brisbane in 1999.

Erasmus, who played 36 Tests at flank, joins the Bok management team having coached the Cheetahs to Absa Currie Cup titles in 2005 and 2006 (the latter shared with the Blue Bulls).

Regarded as one of the world best technical coaches, Erasmus will be a valuable asset to the Boks in the World Cup 2007.

In July 2007 Rassie was appointed Director of Coaching and Coach for the Vodacom Stormers.
