    WP to address fan behaviour

    2013-04-02 16:55
    Cape Town - The Western Province Rugby Union (WPRU) has vowed to address the matter of poor behaviour from within certain quarters of the Newlands crowd.

    This comes after widespread condemnation of bad behaviour by spectators at Newlands during the Stormers v Crusaders Super Rugby match on Easter Saturday.

    According to the Stormers' website, the WPRU on Tuesday met with key operational event role-players with regard to several incidents in the crowd.

    Rob Wagner, WPRU MD, said: “We will never condone bad behaviour from anyone in the crowd at Newlands and are committed to ensuring that Newlands remains an enjoyable rugby venue for all members of the rugby-watching public.”

    “As such, we are happy that the issues were openly interrogated and that solutions were tabled by all operational event role-players.

    “WP rugby will implement the operational recommendations tabled this morning and will also engage with role players like the broadcaster and SANZAR, as to other recommendations for future Stormers v Crusaders fixtures at Newlands.”

    Injured Stormers wing Bryan Habana also tweeting his disgust at the fans.

    He tweeted: "If I had the money I would happily buy all these “Cape Crusaders” a one way ticket to Christchurch!! #disappointedproudsouthafrican."

    Before adding: "highly doubt there’s any place in the world where you get booed off your bus, at your home stadium, by your “fellow” countrymen. And yet there are so many amazing, passionate, faithful supporters at Newlands!! We really appreciate your support!!!"

    The Crusaders won the match 19-14.
