The Springbok coach Peter de Villiers will face further action following his comments last week suggesting the All Black's victories over his side in the year's first two Tri-Nations tests were the result of a conspiracy.
The competition's governing body SANZAR has issued a notice of alleged misconduct against de Villiers.
SANZAR Chief Executive Steve Tew says having considered the response from the South African Union they've determined that de Villiers' comments may constitute a breach of the SANZAR Code of Conduct and warrant further consideration by a SANZAR Judicial Officer.
A SANZAR-appointed Judicial Officer will conduct a hearing in the next week with details to be advised.
In his comments to an Australian television network last week, De Villiers insinuated the All Blacks were given a leg-up in the Tri-Nations to help swell excitement for next year's World Cup.
