Erasmus and Nienaber To Munster a Done Deal?

We’ve known for a while now that Rassie Erasmus to Munster is almost a certainty but no official word has yet been announced. Now however, a source close to South African rugby has not only stated that the ex-Springboks coach will arrive in the province next season but that he is also set to bring ‘defence guru’ Jacques Nienaber with him.

Extract from SARUGBYMAG… 

aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
“Rassie Erasmus is set to leave South African rugby to take up a position as director of rugby at Munster.
aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
According to Rapport, Erasmus will leave his post as SA Rugby’s general manager of high performance after the June series against Ireland.
 aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
Strained relationships and political infighting among SA Rugby’s upper hierarchy have been cited as one of Erasmus’s reasons for heading abroad after he also missed out on the Bok coaching job.
aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
Erasmus currently heads up SA Rugby’s coaching mobi-unit, and it’s also reported that highly rated defence guru Jacques Nienaber could follow him to Munster.”
Nienaber and Erasmus are highly rated for their efforts at both club and international level in South Africa 
Nice one.
