    Cape Town - Former Bulls high-performance manager Xander Janse van Rensburg could face criminal charges after being implicated in fraudulent dealings.

    According to Netwerk24, the Bulls have launched a forensic investigation into the alleged fraudulent activities of Janse van Rensburg, and while the findings of the internal forensic investigation have not been disclosed, it is believed there is enough evidence for criminal charges to be brought against Janse van Rensburg.

    Bulls CEO Alfons Meyer confirmed to the Afrikaans publication that the franchise was considering criminal charges against Janse van Rensburg, based on the preliminary findings of the forensic investigation which was presented to the Bulls’ board at a meeting last Wednesday.

    Some of Janse van Rensburg’s illegal dealings allegedly include paying for the alcohol at his wedding and other personal functions with money from the union's bank accounts without authorisation from his superiors, demanding and receiving a R60 000 payment from a current Bulls employee to be reappointed in his position, a R1 million tender awarded to a guesthouse that belongs to one of his family members, the use of R50 000 attributed on the books as pocket money for one of the Bulls’ tours of Australasia, kickback payments made to players and their agents, and paying a schoolboy R1 million to join the union.

    Janse van Rensburg, who abruptly resigned from his post in February, had occupied the role since 2012 and was responsible for the Bulls' talent identification and management of their professional teams and academy structures.

    The University of Pretoria law graduate had previously worked as the union's coordinator of schools and high-performance activities where he was involved in the scouting and recruiting of junior players.
