WP Rugby Senior Professional Coach, Rassie Erasmus, is contracted to WP Rugby until the end of 2012 and will not be leaving WP to take up a coaching position with SARU. "Rassie is committed to WP Rugby and is a valued and respected member of the coaching staff. The rumours of a rift and an imminent move have absolutely no basis." Said Rob Wagner MD WP Rugby (Pty) Ltd.
