SANZAR are to investigate comments made by our very own Peter de Villiers, who has claimed that the referee’s and All Blacks were in cahoots to help generate interest in rugby ahead of the 2011 World Cup in New Zealand.
”I’ve got my own observations about the last two Tests, and I can’t say it in public. But we do have a World Cup in New Zealand next year, and maybe it was the right thing for them to win the games so they can attract more people to the games next year.”
If SANZAR find that De Villiers has brought the game into disrepute following his latest crack pot outburst, they will be forced to censure him adding fuel to the fire that South Africa are being hard done by the powers that be when it comes to the judicial side of the game.
Sanzar representatives said the organisation was ”aware of the comments, but there is no official position on them at this stage”.
Former Wallabie hooker and thug branded the Bok coach a clown and a puppet following the Bok coaches comments.
Cannon, a panellist on The Rugby Club said “I can’t believe that senior players like John Smit and Victor Matfield allow themselves to be controlled by this guy,” he said.
“He is a clown. He surely does not coach the team.”
Bok spokesperson Anthony Mackaiser sprang to Divs defence and issued an ultimatum to Fox Sports that they immediately apologise or no longer have on-air access to South African players or management.
A Fox Sports spokesman has been quoted as saying the apology from Cannon will take place at the start of Saturday night’s test coverage at Suncorp Stadium.
I will believe it when i see it.Tweet
