An unnamed Griquas rugby player has been fined R10,000 and suspended for four games after an incident at pre-season training camp.
The player allegedly ran across a bowling green carrying an old SA flag. Initial reports, which were denied, said the white player shoved the flag in the face of a black teammate.
At a hearing this week, the player was found guilty of breaching World Rugby’s regulations and banned for four matches‚ suspended for two. Half of the fine was suspended for two years.
