Rollers face relegation to lower division or points deduction


Township Rollers have been found guilty of the improper registration of Onkarabile Ratanang and the club will know its fate tomorrow.

The case has dragged on but neared its conclusion on Wednesday when the Disciplinary Committee found Rollers guilty of misconduct.

Ratanang was reportedly registered on October 29 nearly a month after the closure of the transfer window on September 30.
