Rassie Erasmus joins SA Rugby’s fight to alleviate hunger

Director of Rugby, Rassie Erasmus, is all in with SA Rugby’s #StrongerTogether for R32-12 campaign, which is aimed at raising funds to feed those in need during and after the COVID-19 pandemic, while a unique new prize was added to the collection.

SA Rugby revealed on Monday that it had raised more than R500,000 in the first six days of the campaign, in which a raffle ticket for R32-12 puts you in line to win one of several unique prizes from members of the Springbok Rugby World Cup squad.

Gilbert, official ball supplier to RWC 2019 and SA Rugby, has also come to the party and added a limited edition replica Cup final ball for every winner, commemorating last year’s final, which the Springboks won by 32-12 over England.

Erasmus, who guided the Boks to RWC glory in Japan, is donating his lucky white shirt and a talk to raise funds for the winner’s charity of choice.

“This is a superb cause and I am grateful to be able to play a small part in trying to help those who have been hit hardest by this pandemic,” said Erasmus.

“The story of the white shirt started in 2018 – every time we lost, I changed my clothes, and unfortunately that happened quite often.

“But fortunately in 2019, I only had to do it once, so it’s definitely my lucky shirt, and I’ve decided to ‘retire’ the shirt I wore last year in Japan as part of a prize in the #StrongerTogether for R32-12 campaign.”
