Former Bishops Diocesan College schoolboy turned professional rugby player BingĂ´ Ivanisevic and Bishops are being sued for R645 000 for a punch thrown at a Rondebosch Boys High School pupil during a water polo match between the two rival schools.

The “BishBosch”, as the highly competitive derby between the two schools is called, took place on February 3, 2018 during a match at Bishops and ended with the Bishops coach being pushed into the pool.

Ivanisevic is accused of punching Rondebosch opponent Ross Stone in the mouth, causing one of his teeth to sink to the bottom of the pool and displacing two others.
