Stormers coach Rassie Erasmus is under investigation and could face a disciplinary hearing, following a confronting with the referee and touch judges during his team’s 6-12 Super 14 loss to the Waratahs in Sydney at the weekend.

The encounter with the match officials occurred on the field at half-time.

Erasmus, who was unhappy with several decisions throughout the opening half against, admitted after the game that he had “crossed the line”.

“I was attempting to approach the touch judges to watch out for a few things, but apparently you can’t do that,” he told the media.

“That’s the laws and I accept that.”

Erasmus apologised for his error, saying he was only trying to talk to the touch judges.

However, there is a chance he may still have to face the music for his misdemeanour.

    Did he really think he would be allowed to speak to the match officials during a match? 😯
