Rassie was banned from rugby activities for two months after he posted a video criticising the officiating in the first test between the Boks and the British and Irish Lions. While he will return to his duties as Director of Rugby, he is still banned from matchday activities until October, SARugbyMag confirmed.

Rassie shared a hilarious to his Twitter feed where his daughters thank World Rugby for only giving him a two-month ban and not a day longer. The girls jokingly explained how they're tired of the life lessons he dishes out and the situation of his clothes no longer fitting while he has been at home.

They also shared the good news that Frank is now a South African citizen. Frank is Rassie's English Bulldog who became hugely popular after Rassie shared videos of him getting upset that he was classified as English.

Fans couldn't but laugh at the video of Rassie's daughters making fun of their father, accustomed to entertaining Tweets from their father during his ban.


"Your dad is awesome girls and the past 2 months he gave us great enjoyment. Glad Frank finally got got his citizenship"


"I felt that 'enkosi kakhulu' at the end. It's more powerful than 'siyabonga' = 'baie dankie' or 'thank you'....We love Bra Rassie. Today we christene you as Siyanqoba or Nqobile."


"Very sweet from your Girls. I suspect the one at the back with the shades is more like the Dad."


"The younger one, a chip off the dad block. Coach your daughters are beautiful. Thank you to you and Frank for sharing and allowing us into your space. It was fun, lighthearted and most entertaining. Now the hard work begins, GO GET THEM"
