NSW Waratahs coach Michael Cheika faces a judiciary hearing over his alleged sideline confrontation with a television cameraman in South Africa.

Super Rugby's governing body SANZAR says it has completed an investigation into the incident during the Waratahs clash with the Sharks in Durban on March 29 and is sending it to a hearing.

The case will be heard by SANZAR judicial officer Nigel Hampton QC via teleconference on Wednesday.

SANZAR said it would make no further comment until the process was completed.

South African television broadcaster Super Sport lodged a complaint about Cheika about a verbal confrontation he allegedly had with a cameraman.

It's understood the cameraman was filming Cheika after he'd left the coach's box at Kings Park Stadium and gone down to the sideline mid-match.
