ANC Youth League to disrupt Bok Tests?

Cape Town - The ANC Youth League has vowed to disrupt the Springboks’ three-Test series against Ireland due to an apparent lack of transformation in the sport.

Twelve players of colour have been included in Allister Coetzee's 31-man Springbok squad for the series, but that is not enough, according to the ANC Youth League.

The league’s secretary-general, Njabulo Nzuza, told the IOL website that the series would be disrupted by protests, but would not reveal which games would be targeted.

Mzuza said it’s not enough for black players to be included in the squad, only for them to sit on the bench.

The league said that SA Rugby had not taken its demands for transformation “seriously” and had not replied to the memorandum of demands they had handed to it on May 11.

The Boks tackle Ireland in Cape Town (June 11), Johannesburg (June 18) and Port Elizabeth (June 25).
