CAPE TOWN — Boland Cavaliers coach Abe Davids has been suspended by the union after it emerged he had faked his qualifications.

According to the SA Rugbymag website, the suspension is pending the outcome of a disciplinary investigation into his coaching qualifications.

Davids, who is the brother of Boland president Francois, was appointed as Cavaliers head coach last year. At the time, he was given the opportunity to provide proof of the qualification, but did not do so. The IRB and Saru have confirmed that he did not have the IRB level- three qualification at that stage. The Boland Cavaliers are in the Currie Cup First Division.
