Johannesburg - At least half of the SA Schools rugby squad will feature players of colour in a move to implement quotas at schools level for the first time, according to Rapport on Sunday.
The newspaper said the SA Rugby Union (SARU) had instructed 14 of the 28 member team be drawn from black, coloured 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.
