Stag Cronje remains on the outer of SWD rugby after the Cape High Court ruled in favour of the interim committee.
The interim committee was set up after Cronje, two vice-presidents and six committee members were out-voted by the presidents of the SWD clubs. Fareed Stemmett, Edward Jackson and John Nortje were elected as interim committee members to act as caretakers until the problems were rectified.
Cronje took the matter to court, but via a court interdict Judge Siraj Desai ‘brought an end to the disputes between the parties by ruling in favour of … SWD Rugby Football Union’s new interim committee,’ said CEO Willie Small.
Cronje told The Herald he will still fight and will await the final decision on 24 February, when a full hearing will take place.
‘From now on, Cronje cannot use the union’s finances to fund his legal case,’ said Small. ‘He must fund it himself.’
