DHL Newlands crowd behaviour

PUBLISHED: April 1, 2013

WP Rugby acknowledges that there were incidents of poor behaviour from within certain quarters of the DHL Newlands crowd during Saturday’s Vodacom Super Rugby clash between the DHL Stormers and the Crusaders.

Rob Wagner, WP Rugby’s Managing Director, said: “We would like to apologise to any members of the crowd who were inconvenienced in any way on Saturday. We will never condone bad behaviour from anyone in the crowd at DHL Newlands.

“There seems to be a history of incidents when the DHL Stormers and the Crusaders play at DHL Newlands and we are already in conversation with all role-players to ensure that we do not have a repeat of this in the future.”

A full investigation is taking place to ensure that DHL Newlands remains an enjoyable rugby venue for all members of the rugby-watching public.
