"The PSL also does not allow fans to run onto the pitch after matches, but last week the security stood by as fans streamed onto the playing area. Some of the fencing around the playing area were hopelessly inadequate and fans had little trouble breaching it.
"Perhaps the time has come to hold the PSL accountable when security is not up to scratch. Chiefs and Stellenbosch could start by charging the PSL for failing to provide adequate security at the Danie Craven Stadium."
