One of South Africa's top referees, Mdashe Mlungiseleli, is attacked by a coach from Hoërskool EG Jansen.

Cape Town - EG Jansen High School in Boksburg has temporarily suspended both its first team rugby coaches, pending a disciplinary hearing from the Falcons Rugby Union.

Head coach Reghardt Botha and his assistant Schalk Snyman were involved in an altercation with referee Mlungiseleli Mdashe after a match between EG Jansen and Kempton Park on Saturday.

Botha and Snyman were upset over a decision Mdashe made during the match, which EG Jansen lost.

Snyman was also caught on video bumping into Mdashe with his shoulder. He apparently also swore at Mdashe.

SARU’s referees boss André Watson told Beeld Mdashe was “100%” correct with his decision.

Botha, who also coaches club side Brakpan, was later on Saturday involved in another incident with a referee during half-time of his side's match against the University of Johannesburg.

Both coaches are being investigated by the Falcons Rugby Union, with the result of the hearing to be announced on Thursday.
