Racial Quotas Introduced Into South African Schools Rugby

SA-schools-rugby-squad-2013

It has been confirmed that at least half of the South African schools squad will feature players of colour as the government looks to implement strict racial quotas on sport in the country.

The South African Rugby Union (SARU) has indicated that at least 14 of the 28 member squad must be drawn from black or Indian players.

According to sources, it would be the first time quotas were officially enforced at schools level.

The news comes after the SA School trials were held in Kempton Park on Saturday, where 55 school rugby players were competing for the 28 spots in the team.

South Africa are scheduled to play Under-18 teams from England in Stellenbosch, France in Cape Town and Wales in George, during August.

  1. How to kill rugby, so now somebody of colour will be picked regardless if somebody who isnt coloured is better then him?… people should just be picked solely on skill period.

  3. “According to sources, it would be the first time quotas were officially enforced at schools level.” – Your source is wrong, its been happening for the last 15 years at school level…
