Suspended Lions coach has to wait

2012-07-21 00:00

CAPE TOWN — Suspended Lions coach John Mitchell may have to wait a month or even longer to hear the outcome of his disciplinary hearing at the Golden Lions Rugby Union (GLRU).

The hearing started on Tuesday, but could drag on because the GLRU handles each complaint laid by the players and workers at the union on merit.

Most of the players are on holiday after the Lions finished their Super Rugby season with a 37-20 loss to the Bulls at Loftus at the weekend. Some of the players will testify as witnesses.

GLRU president Kevin de Klerk said the hearing could take “up to a month” to finish. This means that current caretaker coach Johan Ackermann will in all likelihood coach the team in the Currie Cup.
