Rassie working remotely for health reasons

Due to a pre-existing health condition, Rassie Erasmus will continue to work remotely to minimise his risk during the pandemic.

SA Rugby confirmed on Monday that Erasmus will not be with Team Green during the buildup to the Springbok Showdown, nor at the match on Saturday, but will continue to consult extensively from home.

Erasmus was diagnosed in 2018 with a rare condition that causes inflammation of the blood vessels including in the throat and lungs, which increases vulnerability to the impact of a potential Covid-19 infection.

The condition is managed but until all risk is eliminated, Erasmus will continue to work remotely.
