Caller enraged that rugby players spat on a young girl on Sea Point Main Road

Rose called into The John Maytham Show to relate how one of a group of rugby players from what she believes to be the Stepbrothers Club spat on a young girl in Sea Point Main Road in Cape Town.

She says the young girl was traumatised. None of the men would admit responsibility and she says the police said they could do nothing as they could not pinpoint the culprit.

Rose added that the group of men admitted the incident had happened but were all covering for each other.

She said she suspects they are part of the Cape Town Rugby Tens Tournament and that they were drunk.

They were huge men, beasts...beasts! I can only imagine how the poor thing felt. She did report it at the Sea Point Police Station.

Rose says the young girl was hysterical.

You can only imagine a group of huge humungous hairy men going at you like that in the street, and laughing about it. It's not funny.

Spokesperson for the Cape Town 10s Kirsti Lyall was alerted to Rose's call and phoned in to respond. She says the Stepbrothers Club are a travelling team and part of the Cape Town 10s.

Lyall says they will contact the club and get to the bottom of the incident.

As soon as we can get hold of them we will have a chat with them and we will put in place what we need to just to double check what happened and hear from them as well.

She says this event is done in the spirit of fun and they do not want to be perceived as a drunken rugby event. Any bad behaviour, like drunk and disorderly behaviour, does mean the team will get banned from the event she says.
