Eastern Province Rugby Union president Andre Rademan revealed the news in a letter addressed to the union’s executive committee and staff.

That letter was subsequently shared on social media.

The Elephants suffered a 7-74 defeat to the Cheetahs in a pre-season friendly last weekend.

They were set to face Griquas in another pre-season match on Saturday, but the match has now been cancelled.

Eastern Province are scheduled to open their First Division campaign against the Leopards on June 19.
