Boks Ralepelle & Basson to learn fate on Friday

Boks Ralepelle & Basson to learn fate on Friday

The South African Rugby Union says it will announce the decision in the doping hearing of Springboks Chiliboy Ralepelle and Bjorn Basson on Friday.
SARU says its chief executive officer, Jurie Roux, and medical manager, Clint Redhead, will appear at a press conference in Cape Town to reveal the verdict of a three-man judicial committee, which heard the cases of the pair on Tuesday.
Ralepelle, 24, and Basson, 23, tested positive for the banned stimulant methylhexaneamine on the Springboks' tour of Britain and Ireland late last year.
The committee reserved judgment on the Bulls and South Africa players after it heard evidence from them and members of South Africa's team management in a 3 1/2-hour hearing.
They face bans of up to two years.
