Court orders Mapoe to report to Free State

2010-09-29 08:48

SA Sevens player Lionel Mapoe must report to Free State to play rugby in terms of a Free State High Court order.

Judge Corne van Zyl ordered that Mapoe must report to the Free State by 3pm tomorrow or at such a time as the Free State agreed to in writing.

The Cheetahs brought an urgent application against Mapoe, the KwaZulu-Natal-based Sharks and two other parties to force Mapoe to return to Free State and play for the Cheetahs.

The Free State franchise further wanted the court to prohibit Mapoe, who had a contract to play for the Cheetahs until October 31 2011, from offering his services as a professional player to the Sharks before then.
