Breaking news

South Africa’s director of rugby Rassie Erasmus has been banned from all rugby activity for two months for making an hour-long video criticising officials.

The 49-year-old made the video after July’s defeat in the first Test against the British and Irish Lions.

World Rugby found the video contained “premediated, multiple abusive and insulting comments and attacks on the officials’ integrity”.

Erasmus is also banned from taking part in Springboks match days until October.
