JOHANNESBURG – The SA Rugby Union (Saru) on Thursday said it will cooperate in the racial assault investigation of Springbok Rugby World Cup squad member Eben Etzebeth.
Late last month reports emerged which alleged that Etzebeth had been in a group that assaulted a man in Langebaan, a resort near Cape Town.
The case is being handled by the Human Rights Commission (HRC) and the National Prosecution Authority.
Saru released the following statement on the matter:
“As good and law abiding corporate citizens, SA Rugby have given our full co-operation in the Eben Etzebeth investigation and will continue to do so.
