CT 10s rugby player who spat in woman's face banned

[This article has been updated]

The Stepbrother's Club rugby player who spat in Kelly Dorman's face has been banned from the tournament and has flown back to Johannesburg.

On Thursday afternoon enraged caller Rose phoned The John Maytham Show and described how a group of rugby players on Sea Point main Road in Cape Town had spat on a woman.

The men were all wearing Stepbrothers rugby jerseys and she believed they were in town to participate in the cape Town 10s tournament.

Now the woman, Kelly Dorman, who was at the receiving end of the spitting incident, describes what happened.

She says she ran into a Sea Point restaurant Primi Piatti to buy food. A large group of men all wearing the same shirts. They were sitting at a number of tables "downing drinks and swearing."

Dorman placed her order and sat down to wait.

Then a group of them came down to the bar. They were doing more shots....and as I was walking down the stairs one put his leg out and tripped me.

She says she took it in her stride realising they were drunk. An older man in the group apologised.

But then as she was walking to her car she noticed four of the men talking to the man who had apologised.

As Doman was waiting to pull out of her parking place, the man who had tripped her ran across the road to her vehicle.

He pounded on the glass with his two middle fingers giving me the zap sign. So I decided to wind my window down to ask if he had a problem, and as I wound it down, he pulled a lot of phlegm up and spat in my face.

She says she jumped out the car crying hysterically. She expected the other teammates to come to her rescue but none did. They stood laughing and swearing at her.

When I said I was calling the police it got quite intense..and they were swearing and abusing me.

She says when she asked the coach how this could happen, he informed her the culprit was already on a plane back to Joburg.

She is a mother of two young boys and says in all her 38 years she has never experienced such appalling behaviour.

Kirsti Lyall spokesperson for CapeTown 10s says they met with the team and Kelly, and the colonel from Sea Point Police Station and the team apologised. The culprit has been banned from the tournament and has flown back to Johannesburg.

Lyall says based on the team's apology, she was happy for them to continue playing in the tournament.
