JOHANNESBURG – Springbok coach Rassie Erasmus addressed the media in Paris on Monday and answered a few questions about his team.
On what was good against England?
We only gave away six penalties so our discipline was good. The other positive is that we now also know what we have in our two young nines (Ivan van Zyl and Embrose Papier). I also thought S’bu Nkosi in well again after being out (with an injury). We’re building nice depth at Test level.
On that tackle by Owen Farrell?
It’s up to World Rugby what happens. They will give us feedback. But you can’t change the referee’s decision; we must live with it. But if those kinds of things are in the law, then it’s something everyone must be able to do. If it’s acceptable, then we must all do it; if it’s not, then we can’t do it.
