Bloemfontein - The Springbok and Cheetahs prop Coenie Oosthuizen has allegedly been involved in another fistfight in a Bloemfontein bar.

Oosthuizen allegedly heard two men having an argument when he stepped in uninvited and started pushing and shoving one of the men.

“He pushed me and said he would p**s me to death,” one of the men said. “He’s done it before.”

In 2009, Volksblad reported on another incident involving Oosthuizen where he allegedly broke a student’s jaw. Oosthuizen denied the allegation.

In the latest incident the owner of the bar Barba’s had asked the two men to leave the premises when Oosthuizen stepped in.

“We weren’t even out the door when Coenie came from behind and threw a punch at my friend,” the man said. “When he fell, Coenie sat on him and hit him repeatedly.”

After the alleged incident, Oosthuizen apparently got in his car and drove off.

The 23-year-old who was assaulted hails from Bloemfontein and is currently living in Pretoria.

“I’ll consider legal action after I’ve seen the security footage.”

Michael Horak, Cheetahs assistant coach, said the rugby union did not have any knowledge of the alleged incident.

“We can’t get a hold of Coenie,” he said.
