Under-fire head coach Rob Penney described reporter Thomas Mead as a “disgrace” and a “c***” when he thought the microphone was turned off.

CEO Colin Mainsbridge issued an apology via a statement on the club’s website today:

The Crusaders held a media conference on Wednesday for the purpose of naming our team for the week and discussing the upcoming fixture against the Blues.

A line of questioning was undertaken from a reporter present concerning Rob Penney’s future as Crusaders Head Coach. After the media conference had concluded, a private comment to a colleague was inadvertently recorded on third-party microphones, and Rob has since apologised to me for what was said.

On behalf of the Crusaders organisation, I apologise for the comments he made regarding the reporter. I spoke to the reporter today and he has accepted our apology.

The 12-time champions are currently sitting 10th on the Super Rugby Pacific table.
