Munster's Rassie Erasmus

Former Munster DOR - Rassie Erasmus

IN his only interview before his departure for South Africa, Munster Rugby's former Director of Rugby Rassie Eramus spoke exclusively to RTE's Against the Ahead tonight. 

In an interview with Donal Linehan, Erasmus compared new Munster coach Johann van Graan to his former colleague Anthony Foley. 

Rassie Erasmus believes Johann van Graan is the "Axel kind of guy" Munster need right now, and backed his fellow South African to form a special bond with the province.

"Wherever he goes he creeps into people's hearts. He forms that bond and I think that's going to be really good for Munster." added Erasmus speaking about his country man who will take over at Munster next week

The interview in full is available on the RTE Player.
