The Golden Lions Rugby Union (GLRU) is investigating the alleged racial attack that occurred during a club game in Johannesburg last week.
The incident occurred during an under-21 match between the Wanderers and Roodepoort rugby clubs on Wednesday, April 25.
In a statement released by Wanderers, the club claims that racial and verbal abuse was directed towards their players by Roodepoort spectators and players.
Wanderers claim their players were physically assaulted and called the K-word.
The GLRU responded to the matter on Wednesday by confirming that their disciplinary committee was investigating the matter.
The GLRU received statements from both clubs and the referee and will issue a formal statement once the disciplinary process is completed.
