South Africa's Eben Etzebeth will face Italy in the World Cup despite being accused of physical and racial abuse.
He faces legal proceedings over allegations he physically and racially assaulted a man at a restaurant in Langebaan in August.
The South African Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) will approach the Equality Court to ask it to hear what amounts to a civil case.
Etzebeth has denied any wrongdoing and remains with the South Africa squad.
