The South African Rugby Union (SARU) have launched an internal investigation into the conduct of Springbok coach Jake White following an incident in a Johannesburg pub.

White was involved in a late-night argument with a journalist over a newspaper's coverage of the Springbok season.

The journalist was later assaulted by a third party, but claimed his argument with White had incited the attack.

"Jake White is not being grilled as has been suggested, but we have launched an internal investigation," SARU manager of national teams Andy Marinos told reporters.

"Our legal officer is speaking to all parties and once he has done his work, we will take a decision on what further course of action might be taken."

White is in Cape Town preparing his side for the opening Tri-Nations match of the season against Australia on Saturday.
