Stormers could face points docking

The Stormers face an anxious wait as they await the call on the eligibility of their new prop Brian Mujati who moved last year to Cape Town to play for the Stormers.


Mujati (pictured) is a Zimbabwean by birth and was formerly with the Lions.


It has emerged that the necessary documentation for Mujati to play have not been signed. He has been named in the Stormers squad to face the Bulls on saturday.

The Lions have claimed that Stormers and Western Province officials negotiated with Mujati behind their backs and that Mujati is still in their employment and they have thus lodged an objection with SARU.


Should the Stormers play Mujati illegally they could be docked points on the table.


A ruling on Mujati’s eligibility is expected to be made on Friday.
