Cape Town - Officials are investigating claims that Varsity Cup teams have fielded ineligible players in this season's competition.

According to Eyewitness News Sport, three teams were facing charges, with a further three under suspicion in the Varsity Shield.

The teams had allegedly failed to adhere to the Varsity Cup rules that 16 players per team need to be registered students.

A disciplinary hearing was held on Thursday where the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University (NMMU) was cleared of any wrongdoing.

But the other two teams, Tuks and Shimlas, may be cheating according to a source which claimed auditing firm Deloitte backed the findings.

A memorandum from Varsity Cup CEO Duitser Bosman was circulated to all 13-member varsities to inform them of the investigation.

Bosman declined to comment on the matter.
