A South African rugby player has issued an apology to a Sydney boys’ high school after being caught urinating on school grounds during a Springboks training session.
The world champions are in the midst of a two-match series against the Wallabies and need a win this weekend to tie things up with their hosts, having suffered a 25-17 loss in Adelaide last Saturday.
The Springboks arranged training sessions at Randwick Boys’ High School – a popular destination for touring teams – but were left red-faced when an unidentified member of the squad needed an urgent toilet break on Monday afternoon.

According to The Sydney Morning Herald, the player walked to an isolated location near trees but was seen by the school’s headmaster, Lance Raskall.
A spokesperson for the NSW Department of Education confirmed that an incident did occur, but stressed no students from the school had witnessed the player urinating on the field.
The training session took place after school had finished but the pitch was visible by people passing on the street.
Following an apology from the player in question to the principal, the Springboks were allowed to continue training at the school and underwent sessions on Tuesday and Wednesday.
The tourists are searching for their first win in Australia since 2013 and pressure is mounting on the world champions after their poor performance in Adelaide.
Jacques Nienaber has made sweeping changes to his side for the game in Sydney, switching out nine players in a bid to turn the tide at Allianz Stadium – which will host its first Test match since the $830 million revamp.
