Paul Treu has been accused of meddling in Western Province team affairs.
Treu was appointed as WP Rugby’s performance and innovation manager in March.
Afrikaans newspaper Rapport claims that WP head coach Jerome Paarwater and his assistants Nazeem Adams, Rito Hlungwani, Chris October, Naasier Parker and Elliot Hanabe, as well as team manager Cassiem Barnes, are unhappy with Treu’s constant inference in matters.
It is alleged Treu is becoming more and more dictatorial when it comes to making decisions regarding the WP Provincial Rugby Challenge team.
Paarwater and co are also believed to be upset at being labelled quota coaches after a media release from the union referred to their respective appointments as ‘completely transformed’.
The coaches met with CEO Paul Zacks last week to discuss the issue and accepted his explanation that the reference was a mistake.
