Johannesburg - Because of industrial action, the Springbok rugby squad have been forced to cancel a coaching clinic planned for Soweto on Thursday afternoon.
Industrial action in the country over the past two days has made it impossible for the clinic, scheduled to take place at Soweto Rugby Club, to go ahead.
"The players were looking forward to hosting the clinic but circumstances beyond our control have forced its cancellation," said coach Peter de Villiers.
"The guys are truly disappointed but also understand the reasons for the cancellation. They are also appreciative of the efforts of the Soweto Rugby Club which could do little to prevent the cancellation of the clinic," De Villiers said.
