Skinstad: called Erasmus, not Meyer, a dictator

2012-08-31 00:00

ALLEGATIONS that Bobby Skinstad described Heyneke Meyer as a dictator for his coaching style at a fund raiser function have caused a storm.

The former Springbok captain and SuperSport commentator Skinstad, however, said yesterday he was referring to Rassie Erasmus in his days as coach of the Cheetahs and not to Meyer. Skinstad and Jake White spoke at a fundraiser at Emperors Palace in Kempton Park. Skinstad has demanded a media correction and an apology to the SA Rugby union as well as SuperSport. SuperSport presenter Naas Botha said criticism of the Bok coach was good, if it could be substantiated.
