WATCH | Fists fly at Varsity Cup rugby game


As received

This is what happened tonight at the Nelson Mandela University Xerox Stadium.

SASCO members beating up security and rugby players and assaulting women. In the videos, spot the SRC President and various other SASCO members. Complaints brought forward are those of race quota and that fewer black people were on the field.

SASCO proves to be champions of fists rather than champions of students issues that we face at the university. Hundreds of students still await the response for the My Mandela Fund.

Phof besilinde ntoni? Nantsi iSASCO esiyaziyo thina.

A Varsity Cup rugby game was cancelled after a group of people stormed onto the pitch and violence broke out on Monday night.

Maties Rugby club travelled to the Eastern Cape to play against the Madibaz in the FNB Varsity Cup.

Stellenbosch University was ahead in points when the match was called off. Video footage shows security guards being attacked and fists flying on the side lines of the game. Maties Rugby Club tweeted: “Official: Match between FNB Madibaz and FNB Maties have been stopped due to pitch invasion. The final score for the match is FNB Maties 19‚ FNB Madibaz 0.”

Mandisi Tshingana posted video footage of the scuffles on Facebook‚ accusing members of the South African Students Congress (Sasco) of being responsible for the brawl.
