ERC warning for Venter

Saracens director of rugby Brendan Venter has been warned by the ERC over his conduct in future media interviews.

Venter responded to the questions put to him after Saturday's 24-21 Heineken Cup defeat to Racing Metro with a series of non-committal answers.

The South African refused to offer any opinions during the minute-long exchange, often repeating the questions.

It has been interpreted as his protest against a €25,000 fine imposed by the ERC for being "inappropriately critical of ERC" after his side's game against Leinster at Wembley in October.
