KZNRU inefficiency results in 1st XV player being sidelined

29 Mar, 2015 beet 53

Frustration is the best way to describe this situation.

Westville Boys High School was not at fault here. The problem was/is Archie Shelakho, a referee based at the Rugby Unions headquarters at Kings Park who is responsible for signing off the “paperwork”.…

29 Mar, 2015 beet 38

Maritzburg College put in a surprisingly refreshing running rugby performance and deserved more out of the match than the 13-0 win they achieved against hosts Westville.

The referee, fully within his rights, would not allow standout under-17 hooker Hendrik Prinsloo who forms part of a very powerful Griffons frontrow combination to take his place on the field in the under-19 game due to the player not being Boksmart compliant. …
