South Africa could be stripped of their series win against the British and Irish Lions according to reports as Springboks director of rugby Rassie Erasmus is set to face a disciplinary hearing.
Erasmus released a 62-minute video following the first Test against Lions criticising the match officials especially Australian referee Nic Berry while listing out 26 decisions that went against the Springboks as they succumbed to a 17-22 defeat.
He also accused Berry of disrespecting South Africa captain Siya Kolisi as compared to Lions skipper Alun Wyn Jones.
Erasmus' action did not go well with World Rugby as the governing body summoned him for a disciplinary hearing with reports in Rapport claiming one of the punishment could be null-and-voiding the result of the second Test which South Africa won 27-9 that will change the series result to 1-1.
The report further added that another possible verdict could be overturning the result of the second Test in Lions' favour which would result in them winning the series 2-1.
Erasmus is being represented by his legal aide Frikkie Erasmus for the hearing which is expected to be conducted either late August or early September.
