Hunt’s Clever Boys should know bet­ter

Sunday World - - Sport -

Bid­vest Wits must be slapped with the harsh­est sanc­tion for the er­rant be­hav­iour of their play­ers and of­fi­cials to­wards ref­eree Vic­tor Gomes in their 2-0 loss to Kaizer Chiefs.

The drama was sparked by Gomes’s send­ing off of Wits de­fender Robyn Jo­hannes af­ter his sec­ond cau­tion for backchat­ting and dis­sent.

The play­ers, led by cap­tain Thu­lani Hlatshwayo and mid­fielder Tha­bang Monare, mobbed and taunted Gomes while ques­tion­ing how he reached his de­ci­sion.

As pro­fes­sion­als, Wits play­ers should know bet­ter. This is un­sport­ing be­hav­iour.

The in­ci­dent marred a good foot­ball match.
