Cape Town - The South African Rugby Union (SARU) has announced that quotas based on race will be used in the Cell C Community Cup club rugby tournament.

This decision was made at SARU's Annual General Meeting (AGM) in Cape Town on Friday.

Teams will be required to field three black players in match-day squads in 2014, four in 2015 and five in 2016. The original specification was for five black players from 2014.

The Community Cup started last season and replaced the old National Club Championships.

Several rugby clubs in South Africa are affiliated to universities, who play in the annual Varsity Rugby tournaments.

The Community Cup was therefore created for the non-university clubs to run in parallel with Varsity Rugby.

Despatch from Eastern Province won the 2013 edition.
