Recently Erasmus explained how he used a speaker to motivate the Boks during the World Cup and Etzebeth said the tactic was just a tiny snippet into the coach's thought process.

Etzebeth said:

"Rassie has the ability to spot a problem in a team before it is a problem. And that's what makes him such a special coach.
"A lot of guys in the camp meeting after the Ireland [loss] might have been unnecessary... there's no problem in the team, but I think if we didn't address it then we would not have won the World Cup.
