Stormers coach Rassie Erasmus admitted he went over the top in an altercation with officials during the Waratahs match.
The Stormers fell 12-6 to the Tahs and with pressure mounting on Erasmus and his players, he lashed out at the assistant referees at half-time.
Erasmus admitted he ‘crossed the line’.
‘I was attempting to approach the touch judges to watch out for a few things, but apparently you can’t do that,’ said Erasmus.
‘That’s the laws and I accept that.’
Erasmus may face a disciplinary hearing for his actions.
