The running of the EP Rugby academy could be under threat due to a lack of funding.
According to the Herald, the academy’s main benefactor – SA Rugby – has had to withdraw funding, and is now trying to source an outside sponsor.
It's reported that funds have run low as a result of money that has been poured into the beleaguered EP Rugby Union, while the R35m received from the national lottery for the EP, Boland, South Western Districts and Border academies in 2013 has apparently been exhausted.
Down the line, there may only be one SA Rugby academy that will be based in Boland.
