Cape Town - Unhappy Eastern Province rugby clubs will again on Saturday attempt to unseat Cheeky Watson as president of the EP Rugby Union (EPRU).

The clubs have on several occasions this year tried to convene to vote for a motion of no confidence against Watson, but on each occasion the meetings were postponed due to some technicality.

“The motion of no confidence against the current EP management is still on the agenda,” Monde Tabata, who is acting as an administrator at EP on behalf of SARU, told Netwerk24.

“Hopefully things will now be sorted once and for all so that EP can tackle the road ahead.”

Under Watson as president, the EP Rugby Union plunged into a financial crisis last year, with the union unable to pay players’ salaries.

Watson had promised a R200m sponsorship for the Kings but this failed to materialise, with players forced to accept food vouchers following the non-payment of salaries.

SA Rugby was forced to step in and take control of the union which was liquidated last month.
