    Cape Town - The Western Province Rugby Union has begun an investigation into alleged incidents of bad behaviour by spectators at Newlands during the Stormers v Crusaders Super Rugby match on Easter Saturday.

    Rob Wagner, WP Rugby’s managing director, said: “We would like to apologise to any members of the crowd who were inconvenienced in any way on Saturday. We will never condone bad behaviour from anyone in the crowd at Newlands.

    “There seems to be a history of incidents when the  Stormers and the Crusaders play at Newlands and we are already in conversation with all role-players to ensure that we do not have a repeat of this in the future.”

    A full investigation is taking place to ensure that Newlands remains an enjoyable rugby venue for all members of the rugby-watching public.
