Rassie Erasmus has taken to twitter over the last 48 hours since the Springboks lost their first test against the Lions in Cape Town. His first tweet after defeat was a one of congratulations to the Lions, but now people are convinced that he has set up a fake account to bring attention to some of the big calls that went against the Springboks on Saturday.
Rassie Erasmus retweeting an account with an egg profiler and 27 followers which has only ever tweeted twice – both times with reasonably high-spec analysis of decisions that went against SA A/The Boks v the Lions – is interesting

What do you think is Erasmus trying to pull a fast one and influence the officials ahead of the second test? The South Africans only have themselves to blame, they let a nine point lead to slip, next Saturday is going to be explosive.
