Keep politics out of sport. If you are good enough to be selected for a team, regardless of sport or racial demographic, then you should be selected. Full stop. Forcing teams to select players based on any criteria, with race being just one of them, is ridiculous. Destroying sports brands and codes by foprcing selection on political grounds is ludicrous and could end up costing more than it was worth. Leave sport to the sportsmen and sportswomen, and leave politics to the politicians.
