Other sources close to the couple have said that they were aware that the Erasmus couple were no longer living together, but you will not catch anyone in the Springbok circles talking about it.

Not even the Springboks' official spokesperson was willing to comment on the matter.

It might be a while before the source confirms any of this news as Rassie is currently focused on Springbok training.

The team will soon face Wales on the 22nd of June, followed by matches against both Ireland and Portugal shortly after.
