SA Rugby’s decision over Spears could go to court
The ruling by SA Rugby that the Southern Spears can not take part in next year’s Super 14 series is set to embroil South African rugby in yet another furore. The board decided on Wednesday that the Spears were not yet ready to take part in the Super 14 series. The decision could, however, see the thorny matter being taken to court and intensely argued over on the political front. The decision means that none of the existing franchises taking part in the Super 14 series will have to worry about being relegated. However, Spears CEO Tony KcKeever says they are already far down the road in their planning and will not take yesterday’s decision lying down. Legal action is definitely a possibility he added.
