Rassie Erasmus banned from rugby for two months by World Rugby

The touchline has been occupied by him at the recent matches.

The director of rugby in South Africa, Rassie Erasmus, has been banned from all rugby for two months and from involvement with the Boks on matchdays for a year.

The video contained abusive and insulting comments and attacks on the officials.

He was described as "particularly serious and egregious".

The Rugby World Cup triumph of the South Africa's team in the fall of last year led to the departure of the head coach, Rassie Erasmus, to become South Africa's director of rugby.

He has been a water carrier for the team at many of the games, most recently Saturday's win over Scotland.

Both the South African Rugby Union and Erasmus have to apologize to the officials within a fortnight.

The World Rugby's independent committee found that "Erasmus appears not to appreciate the corrosive effect his behavior has on the game more widely, as well as the viewing public and press".

The video highlighted 38 incidents that he felt his side had been on the wrong side of, and also claimed that the captain of the South African team had not been treated with the same respect as his Lions counterpart Alun Wyn Jones.

The video appeared online after Berry demanded a meeting to discuss his performance.

The video was not an objective analysis of the refereeing, according to World Rugby.

It lacked perspective, impartial analysis or balance. It is sarcastic in some places.
