Hot off the heels from the Stormers who were recently fined for a misconduct charge, RWC winning coach Graham Henry has now been officially charged for speaking out against referees.
SANZAR has brought a Misconduct Complaint against Sir Graham Henry of the Blues for comments made on TV NZ News on 21 May 2013 which were widely reported through other media outlets and online.
The complaint has been referred in the first instance to SANZAR Duty Judicial Officer Jannie Lubbe SC in accordance with Rule 10.12 of the SANZAR Disciplinary Rules contained in the 2013 Super Rugby Tournament Manual.
In bringing this complaint, SANZAR will allege that the comments made amount to Misconduct under Rule 10 of the SANZAR Disciplinary Rules and breach the SANZAR Code of Conduct Section 8.3 (a) and (e).
The hearing will take place via teleconference on Sunday 26 May 2013: 4pm (AEST), 6pm (NZST), 8am (SAST).
SANZAR will be making no further comment until this process has been completed.
