Erasmus Confirms He Has Been Asked For His Opinion On Potential New Munster Boss
Good man for the job.
Munster boss Rassie Erasmus has confirmed that the southern province have quizzed him on his former assistant Dave Wessels, and he reckons the former Wester Force boss is a good fit for the job.
Wessells worked as a consultant analyst for Erasmus during his time in charge of Stormers in 2008, and the current Director of Rugby is happy to give his blessing.
“Obviously the guys have asked my opinion about him and that is my involvement, just an opinion. I am not involved further,” said Erasmus.
“I don’t know how far along the line it is. His name was in the mix in July and there are a few names I saw, so I think he is one of a few good candidates. I’m not sure how close they are really to finalising that, but he is one of the good options. I know him really well.”
“There are so many guys who would be good fits because lots of guys want to be at this club. I can vouch for his character, I worked with him and (can vouch for) his work ethic.
“But I don’t know with whom he is actually competing at the end. There might be great characters as well, but he would be one of the good fits.”
Munster are rumoured to be interviewing candidates this week, with Wessels expected to be right in the mix.
