Mitchell saga drags on

Lions coach John Mitchell’s disciplinary hearing has been delayed by yet another week.

Lions president Kevin de Klerk has confirmed that the misconduct hearing against Mitchell will take place next week, as the chairperson is ill.

Mitchell was suspended at the end of June and succeeded by assistant coach Johan Ackermann, who has since taken control of the Lions side in the Currie Cup.

Since Mitchell was first suspended, there have been investigations into allegations of misconduct and Mitchell was supposed to learn his fate this week.
