Rassie Erasmus officially withdrew her appeal in defiance of the ban imposed on her for criticizing umpires during the Lions series, while drinking beer and drinks.

Initially, Erasmus, the South African rugby director, and his union did not accept his suspension; two months of all rugby and 10 months of game days, as a result of his hour-long video of decisions made in the Lions’ first test four months ago.

But in a statement, they both agreed to drop the case once and for all, finally issuing, as they were required to do, an apology to referee Nic Berry.

“SA Rugby and Rassie Erasmus wish to apologize to the designated match officials for the first round of the Springboks series against the British & Irish Lions,” their 27-word apology read.

“This has been a very stressful environment loaded with unusual pressures on everyone involved and we have no desire to prolong that experience for anyone.

“We have drawn a line under the incident and we just want to look ahead. We will respect the results of the hearing, allowing our national teams and rugby operations to clearly plan the coming months. “

Erasmus himself took to Twitter about the announcement. He first posted a video of a South African beer he was drinking, saying its ban wouldn’t be too bad, and then uploaded a second two-drink clip.

In it he drank one, but left the other and wrote in Xhosa: ‘Coach Rennie, this (drink) is very cold and is waiting for you’, and tagged in the Twitter account of Australian rugby plus its CEO Andy Marinos.

That was a reference to Wallabies boss Dave Rennie, who called the umpiring in their loss in Wales last weekend “horrendous” after Nick Tompkins’ vital try was awarded. He thought the center had thrown the ball.
