Cape Town - The South African Rugby Union (SARU) has delayed its General Council meeting by a week. 

The meeting was originally due to take place on December 4 and is understood to have a major influence on whether or not Springbok coach Heyneke Meyer's contract is extended following his semi-final exit at this year's Rugby World Cup.
