Coach De Villiers to face misconduct charge

2010-08-03 08:53

 South Africa, New Zealand and Australia Rugby (Sanzar) says a misconduct charge against South Africa rugby coach Peter de Villiers will be heard in Cape Town on Friday (August 6, 2010).

The governing body for South Africa, New Zealand and Australia’s combined rugby competitions announced on Tuesday (August 3, 2010) that the charge would be heard by its judicial officer Jannie Lubbe at the South African Rugby Union offices.

De Villiers is charged with breaching Sanzar’s code of conduct.

He made comments on July 21 on Australian television in which he criticised the performance of Tri-Nations referees and implied a conspiracy to bolster next year’s World Cup in New Zealand.
