An SA Rugby Union disciplinary hearing against Luke Watson has found in the player’s favour.
Details are sketchy at this stage, but it appears that Watson has won this round. The hearing came to and end after only 90 minutes, apparently on the basis that the adjudicator appointed by SARU didn’t have the necessary authority to hear the case. I mean, what the hell?
In typically unrepentant, boorish fashion, the pint-sized pugilist saw fit to spout further vitriol after the hearing, branding those who accused him “incompetent”.
I guess this just shows the sheer futility of SARU actually trying to take any sort of meaningful action against anyone. They are in such a perpetual shambles that they must represent dream opposition to any legal team worth its salt. Certainly Watson’s crack squad of legal eagles didn’t take very long at all to wrap this one up.
A most unsatisfactory end to an unsavoury saga. Do us a favour, little Luke… dry up and blow away now. We are tired of you.Tweet
