Johannesburg - An assistant rugby coach at Boksburg's EG Jansen High School, caught on video shoulder charging a referee, has been banned from rugby for two years, Beeld reported on Friday.

According to the terms of his suspension, Schalk Snyman may not be directly or indirectly involved with rugby for five years, suspended for three years.

Snyman was expelled after he shoulder charged Mlungiseleli Mdashe, the referee in a match on May 12.

Advocate Jacques Pienaar, chairperson of the Falcons Rugby Union's (FRU) legal committee, told the newspaper Snyman would be permitted involvement in rugby "at other levels".

Jurie Coetzee, executive head of FRU, said Snyman still had an important role to play as he would share the consequences of his mistake with other coaches and pupils and help protect the sport.

He would be used as an agent for positive change in various rugby committees, Coetzee said.
