Cape Town - Cheeky Watson has lived to fight another day aspresident of the Eastern Province Rugby Union.

According to the HeraldLIVE website, a technicalityprevented a planned vote of no confidence

in Watson from taking place at theunion’s annual general meeting on Thursday night.

According to officials present, the vote of no confidencedid not take place because some clubs failed to meet constitutionalrequirements. Some letters from clubs requesting a vote of no confidence werenullified with reasons.

However, Watson’s powers may be severelycurtailed after clubs asked for the financially stricken EP Rugby Union to beplaced under SARU administration.

The request will be tabled at SA Rugby’s next board meeting.

Earlier this week it was reported that the balance of powermay be swinging against Watson after claims that several clubs filed a motionof no confidence in him ahead of Thursday’s annual general meeting.

Under Watson as president, the EP Rugby Union plunged into afinancial crisis last year, with the union unable to pay players’ salaries.

Watson had promised a R200m sponsorship for the Kings butthis failed to materialise, with players forced to accept food vouchersfollowing the non-payment of salaries.

It led to SARU stepping in to take control of the union’sSuper Rugby franchise, the Southern Kings.

The Kings open their Super Rugby campaign at home againstthe Sharks on Saturday (15:00 kick-off).
