SA Rugby magazine's Rassie Erasmus article has Munster and their fans fuming

An article in the next edition of South African rugby magazine, SA Rugby, has already ruffled a few feathers in Munster Rugby.

The piece from the largely-respected mag profiles Munster Director of Rugby Rassie Erasmus.

Now it's fair to say Rassie has helped Munster turn their season around, while showing great character through the province's heartbreaking loss of Anthony Foley.

His home nation even took notice of his success as he was a frontrunner to take over as head coach of the Springboks before the South African Rugby Union decided to keep the current underfire Allister Coetzee.

But Munster's twitter account and the province's fans had something to say about SA Rugby's intro to their profile: "After getting a hostile and suspicious reception in Ireland Rassie Erasmus has steered Munster back on the path of success."

Really? A "hostile and suspicious reception?"

Here's the reaction from Munster:

And there were a few Reds fans who echoed their dismay.
