Stormers facing misconduct complaint
May 7, 2013
SANZAR (South African, New Zealand, and Australian Rugby) is considering a complaint of misconduct against the Stormers and their team management during the Super Rugby match against the Hurricanes in Palmerston North on April 26.
In a short statement on Wednesday, SANZAR said it will make no further comment about the "match day misconduct" incident, which took place during the round 11 match won 18-16 by the South African side.
The case is before a SANZAR judicial officer.
The Stormers played the Blues last Friday and are in Sydney to prepare for their match against New South Wales Waratahs on Saturday.
