Orlando Pirates suspend Lorch

Sports Brief earlier reported that the reprieve of the judge's gavel gave way to vexation for Thembinkosi Lorch as the club announced they would be suspending the player, if only for several weeks, while the club goes through their own process.

Lorch was found guilty of assault with intent to inflict grievous bodily harm for an incident in 2020, and sentenced on November 21 to three years in prison, all of which were suspended for five years

The star has played seven times for the Buccaneers this season, including two Man of the Match performances in the Carling Knockout Cup and an instrumental 90 minutes in the Soweto Derby.
