Div: No race quota for RWC
Cape Town - Springbok coach Peter de Villiers has dismissed any suggestion that there could be political interference in the make-up of his squad for the Rugby World Cup to be played in New Zealand later this year, reports Timeslive.
"There is absolutely no pressure on me to pick a certain number of black players for the World Cup," De Villiers said.
"If it were the case, then I'd have failed as a coach in the past three years. I don't have any obligation to any player to guarantee them a place in the World Cup squad."
The World Cup starts in 100 days' time and De Villiers has urged the public to get behind the team.
