Rademan hits back after ‘impetuous threat’ of fans staying away from Kings matches
EP Rugby Union boss Andre Rademan has branded a rugby transformation group’s call for fans and clubs to boycott Southern Kings Pro14 matches as an impetuous threat fuelled by exaggerated media reports.
The Rugby Transformation Coalition (RTC) wants clubs and fans to stay away from Southern Kings matches until South African Rugby hands control of the franchise back to the EPRU.
But Rademan, who succeeded Cheeky Watson as president of the troubled union in April, said his union was fully behind the Kings in the enlarged European competition, and has called for fan support.
