    Brumbies seek R240k from Jake

    2014-05-20 12:00
    Cape Town - The Brumbies have taken to the courts in an attempt to get A$25 000 (R240 000) from Jake White for walking out on them half-way through his contract.

    According to the Sydney Morning Herald website, White was served papers in Canberra the day  before the Sharks clashed with the Brumbies on May 10.

    According to documents lodged in the ACT Magistrates Court, the amount is understood to be the final portion of an estimated A$200 000 (about R1.93m) White owed the Brumbies after violating a non-compete clause in his contract with them.

    It is understood the balance of that amount was paid by the Sharks some time in late February or early March.

    White quit as Brumbies coach in September last year, two seasons into his four-year deal. He said his failure to be appointed Wallabies coach was the main reason for his departure.

    Under the terms of his agreement with the Canberra-based side, White was prohibited from coaching another Super Rugby side until the end of 2015.

    But less than a month later he was appointed as the new Director of Rugby at the Sharks.

    White took the Brumbies to the Super Rugby final last year before losing to the Chiefs in Hamilton. He has also started his tenure well at the Sharks, with the Durban-based team currently top of the overall Super Rugby log with nine wins from 12 outings.

    EXPERT OPINION

    “Advantage is a great part of rugby, says Tank Lanning, but it allows for lots of personal interpretation, hence Victor Matfield’s tirade. ”
