Claims of discrimination by Stormers assistant coach Paul Treu following a fractious 2018 Super Rugby campaign‚ have been dismissed after an independent investigation.
The exact content of claims made by Treu have not been made public but it is understood he clashed with fellow Stormers assistant coach Paul Feeney. An independent investigation by law firm Bowmans found no substance to the allegations of unfair discrimination or unfair labour practices.
WP Rugby made the outcome public on Thursday. According to WP Rugby the comprehensive final report made no negative or adverse findings against any WP Rugby officers‚ coaches or staff members.
But with these matters‚ a statement by WP raised questions such as Treu’s continued role as Stormers assistant coach? Or Feeney’s for that matter?
The entire coaching staff‚ led by head coach Robbie Fleck is under contract until the end of 2019.
“After an extensive investigation process that saw 29 associated people interviewed and numerous documents reviewed in this matter‚ we are pleased that the independent inquiry found that there was no foundation to the allegations‚” WP Rugby chief executive Paul Zacks said.
