White player exodus on cards

Think about it this way: You're a really good rugby player. You don't get into the squad of a S15 franchise and therefor have no hope of playing for the Boks because you are kept out by quota players that aren't as good as you. What do you do?

In your opinion if that player emigrates (please learn the difference between immigrate and emigrate, I'm helping you here) to Europe "he isn't part of the solution".

I am all for transformation if done correctly. It starts by poring money in at school level and nurturing disadvantaged youngsters so that they can compete with their more privileged peers and earn their way on merit. I am as opposed to enforcing a 60:40 quota system in soccer as I am to enforcing it in rugby and cricket. A national team should reflect the talent of a country, not its demographics. WIth proper development and more equal opportunities the demographic mix will be reflected naturally over time.
