Rassie Erasmus' decision to include Tony Brown in his coaching team for the Springboks has been praised by former teammates of the former All Blacks fly-half. SA Rugby recently announced that Erasmus had extended his contract with the union until 2027 and revealed the new additions to his coaching staff. Along with Jerry Flannery, Duane Vermeulen, and Jaco Peyper, Brown was one of the new faces. Former Springboks Schalk Burger and Jean de Villiers, as well as ex-England centre Brad Barritt, all commended the decision to bring Brown on board. Brown, highly respected for his coaching abilities, was a top contender for the All Blacks coaching staff but was ultimately overlooked for the head coaching role. However, De Villiers believes that Brown will fit well into the Springboks system, highlighting his extensive experience as both a player and coach. Brown's appointment has also been praised for bringing a fresh perspective and innovative approach to the team. This move follows Erasmus' past trend of including foreign coaches in his staff, emphasizing the value of utilizing experts in their respective fields.
