Willemse, SuperSport part ways

JOHANNESBURG - Three months after his dramatic walkout during a live broadcast, SuperSport confirmed on Thursday that Ashwin Willemse won't be returning on air.

The broadcaster says Willemse’s contract as a rugby analyst has expired and won't be renewed.

In May, the former Springbok wing walked off set, claiming fellow analysts Nick Mallett and Naas Botha had undermined and patronised him. 

A public outcry over perceived racism followed, and all three analysts were taken off air during an independent inquiry.

Mallett and Botha were cleared and have since returned to the studio, while Willemse and his legal team have said they'll be taking the matter to the Equality Court.
