Cape Town - The hearing into the alleged contravention of the Varsity Cup regulations by NWU-Pukke in relation to an ineligible player was postponed in Cape Town on Saturday.

Varsity Cup CEO Duitser Bosman commented: “Advocate Stelzner SC, acting as the independent chairperson, ruled that the matter should be postponed to a further date to allow time for scrutiny of further relevant documentation and to hear evidence in person from certain witnesses to get clarity on key issues in dispute.”

The case is postponed until a date in early May to be agreed by the parties. 

“Obviously we are working hard to finalise this matter as soon as possible. However, out of respect for due process and bearing in mind the significance of this matter, Stelzner’s ruling was supported by both Varsity Cup and NWU,” said Bosman.

Pukke won the Varsity Cup earlier this month when they defeated Maties 7-6 in the final in Stellenbosch.

But they could be stripped of their title if found guilty.

Varsity Cup organisers earlier docked Varsity Shield team, UKZN, 12 log points for fielding an ineligible player.
