Oh Fudge! They tested my pee!

Bulls lock Fudge Mabeta has been caught having a toke of the waccy backy.

Well, to be precise, the youngster’s urine tested positive for cannabis after the ABSA under 21 semi-final on 11 October and the Union has requested for his B-sample to be tested. Should the lanky lock turn in a second positive test, he can expect to be suspended for 3 months or more.

This is the same player who was recently involved in an altercation with Pretoria police, one in which teammate John Mametsa ended up being entwined. The latter ended up spending the night in jail for his troubles.

The following is all just speculation:

Given Fudge’s “alleged” penchant for the leaf of life, it’s quite possible that we now understand why the cops were giving him such a hard time after a “minor traffic incident”. Perhaps the boys in blue smelled something slightly suspicious and were giving young Mabeta (allegedly the son of an important government official) the once over when Mametsa intervened. Mametsa himself has a court date on 5 December to jink his way through.

Mabeta is just the latest casualty of the “young lock curse” affecting the Bulls. In recent seasons, they have seen Cliff Milton, Adriaan Fondse, Francois van Schouwenburg (temporarily) and Juandre Kruger leave the Kraal, while they have also lost Hendrik Roodt to early retirement.


  • ooh – this gets tastier and tastier.

    Apparently the fuzz got suspicious when they discovered a parked car impeding the flow of traffic… in the car was friend Mabeta. When they enquired what he was doing, he apparently reversed into a cop car.

    At this stage, Mametsa arrived and started throwing his weight around…

  • he he – better and better. Mabeta is the son of a South African diplomat, currently overseas. He was in the car with the daughter pf the national head of crime intelligence! Apparently, after the accident, the cops had the big boy spread-eagled and were busy searching him (FOR WHAT???) and it was at that point that Mametsa sprung into action. Mametsa apparently assaulted a police officer and resisted arrest. He could still be in BIG shit.

    If you going to roll a joint whilst impeding traffic thats just stupid..a nice quiet cul-de-sac or petrol staion is a better idea.

  • @CoffeeShopBok;-) (Comment 3) : well, the other possibility is that he was giving one to the daughter of a high-up policeman at the time… might explain the “extra attention” he got…

  • But the police are not the friendliest in PTA…and no I am not talking about the boere…these were 7 black policemen and one black woman…
    Went to the theater on Friday and went to friends in Montana and then to town to eat something….the other friends we followed left us there and we had no clue where we were…
    We noticed a friend walking across the street and asked to give us directions which he did…while he was explaining to me who was sitting in my car 3 police vans stop behind my car…chase the one giving directions away and pulls me out of my car…
    It was me (very white boi looking) and 5 black friends (all young looking) sitting in my IS250…so he cops ask what we are doing…I tell him (same as above)…
    He says not with these young ones and pulls then out ans starts searching my friends (did not search me)…now I don’t drink or even smoke sigs…so this one fat policemen keepos on telling me I am high…I say test me and then he echo’s in a high pitched voice test me…
    Then they say we are playing cause if we were lost why did we not go to the police stations (I MEAN WAHT PART OF WE HAVE NO IDEA WHERE WE ARE DID THEY NOT UNDERSTAND)…but I left it at that cozz I was already treading on thin ice cozz I told the far policeman after the 6 time he acho’d in a high pitched voice that he seems high and I was quickly told I must count my words cozz they will make my life very difficult…
    Eventually they left us to go and kept on shouting “DONT COME BACK TO PTA”….I mean those are the type of stories you hear from the apartheid era…people being forfully chased from areas and banned from coming back…

  • Nobody’s perfect & everybody makes mistakes, but if you are in the privileged position of being paid to play sport you should really know better than to take recreational drugs (or any other kind) when there is every chance you will be tested. 🙄

  • From the Bulls website.

    If Mabeta’s second monster is also positive he will have to appear before a disciplinary committee, but fortunately cannabis is not a performance enhancing drug and this will count heavily in the players’ favour.

    I hope they can tame the “monster”? 🙄

    I really do wish they would get someone to proofread for them over there. 😕 🙄

  • a Guy over there makes a valid point. Are the Bulls going to give Fudge the same protection and support they gave Spies?

    I think it is to late for that already.

    One of a group of referees who did really well in the IRB 7s circuit before all being “promoted” to the 15 a side variation at the same time.

    Craig Joubert

    No…after my last e-mail where I actually compared the players and gave my harsh opinion on the way they apply their mind with team selections I was ignored…
    I mean come on…they used the Bulls not keeping him as an excuse why they did not!??! Why then did we take him and start him ahead of everyone else????
    Plus the comment I made about the LIONS being the only team in the world that is a young developing side fro 3 and a half years running…
    So yes…all further communication was ignored!!!!!

    But come S14…I’ll still be wishful…what is J Fouire takes a Euro offer after 2009 when his contract ends??? Are they going to say it will be unfair towards the other players to pay him more!???!
