Cape Town - The University of Stellenbosch is suing South African Rugby Union (SARU) CEO Jurie Roux for R32m - the amount the Cape university believes Roux used to help fund the Maties Rugby Club.

According to Netwerk24, the university is suing Roux in the Western Cape High Court - and want him to pay back the money.

According to court documents, Roux and a colleague, Chris de Beer (then the deputy director of student fees), worked together between 2002 and 2010 where they made "unauthorised" transfers from the university's reserve funds.

The funds are believed to have been transferred to a variety of cost points related to the Maties Rugby Club, and used for a variety of club activities, including bursaries for players.

Roux left his job as chairperson of the Stellenbosch Rugby Club in 2010 to become SARU CEO.

De Beer was fired by the university in 2012.
