Cape Town - Springbok and Sharks loose forward Ryan Kankowski has been ordered to pay R322 500 in commission to his former agents.

According to IOL Sport, Kankowski was ordered to pay the amount to his previous management team, In Touch Sports Management, in an arbitration hearing which concluded on Wednesday.

The 29-year-old was also ordered to pay back interest on the amount from May 2010 until final settlement, plus legal fees.

Kankowski had denied owing the company any money, claiming the terms of the contract were “vague and confusing”.

He had also claimed that he was contracted with a particular agent and not the management company, and therefore entitled to terminate his contract when the agent left the company.

But the arbitrator found in favour of In Touch Sports Management and ordered Kankowski to pay the outstanding amount.

Kankowski has represented the Springboks on 20 occasions since making his debut in 2007. His last Test came against England in Port Elizabeth in 2012.

He returned to the Sharks last year after enjoying several stints in Japan.
