CAPE TOWN - A rugby match between Stellenbosch and Nelson Mandela universities had to be abandoned on Monday when violence broke out.

Several minutes into the second half of the Varsity Cup game between Maties and the Madibza on Monday night, a group of people, said to belong to Nelson Mandela University’s SRC, tried to storm a room at the sports venue.

Fights then broke out and the game was called off.

The university’s management says the incident was regrettable and will be investigated.
