Former Ireland wing Andrew Trimble believes rugby needs more characters like Rassie Erasmus

South Africa’s unique communication method during their Rugby World Cup victory over Scotland has sparked discussion and divided opinion.

The ‘traffic light’ system

Coach Felix Jones was seen using a coloured light from the coaches box to signal instructions to the players.

Trimble’s approval

Former Ireland wing Andrew Trimble supports South Africa’s innovative approach to the game and believes rugby needs more characters like Rassie Erasmus.

Kearney’s perspective

Rob Kearney, another former Ireland player, suggests that the system could relieve pressure from the captain by making decisions for them.

Alun Wyn Jones’ view

Alun Wyn Jones, test rugby’s most-capped player, is undecided on whether the coloured light system would have helped South African captain Siya Kolisi.

Overall, the unique communication method used by South Africa has generated discussion and intrigue among rugby fans.
