Eusebius and Aki Anastasiou discuss the Springbok player Eben Etzebeth case where he allegedly called a homeless man the H-word.

Rugby ruling body SA Rugby is investigating allegations that Springboks player Eben Etzebeth assaulted and racially abused a homeless man just before the World Cup.

On Wednesday, the Human Rights Commission announced it would approach the Equality Court after receiving a complaint from some residents in Langebaan in the Western Cape.

Etzebeth is accused of allegedly using a derogatory term during a row with one of the residents in the area in August.

Eusebius McKaiserand Aki Anastasiou discuss the matter during the open line.

The law is a blunt instrument for dealing with this kind of thing.

Eusebius McKaiser, Show host

You have to ask yourself as a team: what are our values? what is the history of rugby in itself?

Eusebius McKaiser, Show host

My worry is a mischief-maker who successfully sees Eben not going to Japan might go 'oh this is kind of interesting. If there is pressure on an organisation to first get Aki out of the building and then ask questions and investigate, I can get back at Aki.

Eusebius McKaiser, Show host

There are so many questions around this and why has it taken Saru so long to actually start the investigation.

Aki Anastasiou, Tech Guru
