'Tahs coach to hear his fate

    Cape Town - Waratahs coach Michael Cheika faces a judicial hearing over his alleged sideline confrontation with a television cameraman in Durban.

    Super Rugby's governing body, SANZAR, on Thursday announced it completed an investigation into the incident which occurred during the Waratahs' Super Rugby clash with the Sharks at Kings Park on March 29.

    Pay-channel SuperSport lodged a complaint against Cheika over a verbal confrontation he allegedly had with a cameraman.

    It's understood the cameraman was filming Cheika after he'd left the coach's box and gone down to the sideline mid-match.

    SANZAR has referred the matter for a hearing in accordance with SANZAR's disciplinary rules.

    The matter will be heard by SANZAR judicial officer Nigel Hampton via teleconference on Wednesday, April 16 at 09:30 (SA time).

    SANZAR said it would make no further comment until the process was completed.
