Pukke given all clear
NEWS: North West University-Pukke have been given the all clear to retain their 2016 Varsity Cup title after an independent chairman cleared them of any wrong doing.
Pukke are alleged to have been in contravention of the Varsity Cup regulations wherein they used an ineligible player during the 2016 Varsity Cup competition.
During the 2016 tournament numerous participating Universities were docked points for fielding ineligible players, none more so than University of KwaZulu-Natal (Impi) who were docked 12 points for the rule breach, which subsequently cost them a place in the promotion/relegation match.
The independent chairman, Advocate Stelzner SC ruled in favour of Pukke on Friday.
The Varsity Cup Board will meet on Monday, May 30 to discuss the ruling and issue an official statement.
