Cape Town - It is believed that the majority of South African rugby's provincial presidents are supporting embattled CEO Jurie Roux - and want president Oregan Hoskins to get the boot.

Roux has come under fire in recent weeks after it was reported that he “manipulated” financial management systems to favour the rugby programme during his time at Stellenbosch University.

He allegedly also benefited from bursaries he allocated to players when he was chairperson of the Maties Rugby Club.

The unauthorised payments are believed to be as much as R32m and Roux has been summoned to the Western Cape High Court to pay back the money.

According to Netwerk24, Hoskins wants Roux to be suspended before his court case, but the CEO has the backing of the majority of SARU's executive council.

SARU’s council will meet in Johannesburg next week to discuss the crisis, with the meeting held under independent chairmanship with Hoskins not presiding.

There have been rumours of provincial presidents planning to bring a vote of no confidence against Hoskins.
