Stormers assistant coach Paul Treu reportedly stormed out of a season review meeting this week.
Treu allegedly said that he’d had enough of being mistreated and was not going to take it anymore.
According to Netwerk24, Treu did not take any further part in the review and did not show up for work on Thursday. It is thought that Treu and Stormers assistant Paul Feeney, a New Zealander, do not see eye-to-eye.
Western Province president Thelo Wakefield confirmed that there is a problem among the coaching staff, but director of rugby Gert Smal said the issue is sensitive and would be handled internally.
The divide is a further blow to a union that has been the centre of a financial mismanagement saga over the past year.
