The team’s defence coach, who’s staring code of conduct charges in the face, will be appealing.

Lions assistant coach Joey Mongalo will be appealing both his conviction and undisclosed sentence by an Australian court for indecent assault, The Citizen has confirmed

The 34-year-old was in the Downing Centre Local Court in Sydney on Wednesday, where Magistrate K Thompson sanctioned the franchise’s defence guru after he was found guilty on 12 April.

Sordid details had emerged during the trail last year of Mongalo, who was on a Super Rugby tour with the team, of him forcing a hotel employee at Crown Plaza Hotel in Cogee to touch him in an untoward manner.

The court also heard that CCTV footage revealed that Mongalo and the employee had interacted at least two times at a hotel counter before the incident.

Mongalo has returned to South Africa and will be subjected to an internal disciplinary hearing as the franchise views the latest developments in a very serious light.

“The Lions Rugby Company, in consideration of the court ruling handed down in the matter of Mr. Joey Mongalo, hereby confirms that it respects the judicial processes of the Australian Government and the subsequent court ruling in this matter,” the union said in a statement.

“The Lions Rugby Company considers misconduct related to Assault with the Act of Indecency, particularly serious and a direct violation of Lions Rugby Company values and culture. The Lions Rugby Company will follow the normal internal disciplinary processes regarding the matter.”

The union also stated that there will be “no further comment on the matter until the Code of Conduct process has concluded”.

OK, so  hy is skuldig bevind. As hy skuldig is moet hy boet vir sy dade. Ek hoop die Leeus stel iemand met beter morele waardes en n ordentike defensive system aan in sy plek.

Ek sien nou op rugby365.com dat Swys ook op pad is SA toe. Blykbaar vir persoonlike redes.
Nou raak ek bekommerd.

Hoekom het dit so lank gevat om hom skuldig te bevind? Van die begin af het dit baie duidelik gelyk of hy skuldig is.

Hulle het seker maar gewag tot hy weer saam met die span in Aus was. Dis al wat ek aan kan dink. Die hofsaak was mos in Sydney

So as hy nooit weer Aus toe gegaan het nie, was hy nooit gevonnis nie?

Joey Mongalo moet tot Julie vir ’n appèldatum wag nadat ’n hof in Sydney hom verlede week skuldig bevind het aan onsedelike aanranding.

Die Leeus se verdedigingsafrigter is met 2 000 Australiese dollar beboet nadat hy op 23 April 2018 deur ’n hotelwerker in Sydney van onsedelike aanranding aangekla is. Die appèldatum is nog nie bepaal nie.

Tot die appèl-uitspraak sal hy nie ’n kriminele rekord in Nieu-Suid-Wallis hê nie. Sy vonnis van 18 maande se gemeenskapdiens is ook opgeskort.

Wen Mongalo die appèl, word die vonnis en skuldigbevinding geskrap.

Rudolf Straeuli, uitvoerende hoof van die Leeus, het bevestig Mongalo (34) sal binnekort voor ’n interne tugverhoor van die Leeus verskyn. Die Leeus sal geen verdere kommentaar lewer tot die saak eers afgehandel is nie.
