Former SA Rugby CEO and Stellenbosch University financial director Jurie Roux's fight against having to pay back R37 million that he reallocated for the benefit of the university's rugby programme began in the Western Cape High Court on Wednesday. 

Roux, who served on the university's finance committee between 2002 and 2010, has been deemed to have irregularly allocated university funds without council approval. 

In 2020, an arbitration hearing ruled Roux should pay back the money, which was held up on appeal in 2021. 

His team is now arguing there were "gross irregularities" in the arbitration process and it should be set aside.
