Rassie Erasmus Claims He Joined Twitter For Noble Reasons

Rassie Erasmus Claims He Joined Twitter For Noble Reasons

Rassie Erasmus sat down last night for what he called a 'Lekka Chat', or friendly chat, over vimeo.

While he didn't explicitly discuss his recent controversial Twitter posts concerning refereeing decisions during the Autumn Nations Series, he did provide his own reasons for joining social media.

He explained that he joined Twitter in order to further understand the affect it had on certain players, whose performances he felt were hampered by social media.

However, he did not explain how this related to his numerous sarcastic videos, calling out referees and officials.

“I have sometimes seen a player leaving on a Wednesday at 12 o’clock from a brilliant training and seeing him on the Thursday evening or the Friday morning and the player is a totally different player," explained Erasmus. "Either too much confidence or no confidence, or something is really bothering him.


“In the beginning, I was totally against it: stay off social media, don’t follow it, all those things but eventually, you get to understand this is here to stay and social media eventually takes everything and combines it into one platform."

“If you don’t know the narrative that is currently out there you will sometimes be surprised by what is going on with this player and why is this player rattled," continued Erasmus. "It’s because they read social media… it finds its path to the person you directed it to.

“So I decided to join just to find out why are players leaving on a Wednesday afternoon and you see them on a Thursday evening and they are either walking on water and some guys are level headed where it doesn’t influence them but then with others you see there is a hell of a story going on out there. So that is why I joined social media.”
