Sharks rugby coach Dick Muir has resolved the issues he had with time keeper Gabriel Pappas, following last Saturday’s Super 14 clash against the Lions at Ellis Park.

Muir was involved in an altercation with Pappas after Sharks hooker Bismark du Plessis was not allowed to return to the game following treatment in the blood bin.

In a statement released by the Sharks Tuesday, the union sais it was brought to its attention that due to extreme pressure, Muir had had a verbal altercation with Pappas, the official time keeper.

“Dick has been in contact with Pappas and the matter has been resolved in a rugby manner. ‘All matters involving the match on Saturday have been discussed at a management meeting and have been addressed.”

The matter had, however, also been referred to the South African Rugby Union, who is expected to accept the steps taken by the Sharks.
