The rugby unions and coaches too easily side-step & manipulated the application & implementation of rugby transformation. Too often training groups are loaded with african (black & coloured) players but not included in the 23 playing squad. The current quota system must be replaced with a more robust approach to insure an “acceptable” representativity level for african players in curry cup, super rugby & springbok level.
A workable accepted system/solution for 2014 is to place a “restriction” on white player representation in a team of 23 players (11 players with 6 reserves).
This “restriction” will insure for opportunities for 85 white players (73,9%) and 30 african players (26%) to compete and will create a win-win situation for all players.
The “guarantee quota wing” position for african players are under threat and fewer opportunities are created in these positions.
The following players must be given opportunities for preparations for 2015 word cup; Raymond Rhule, Trevor Nyakana, Juan de Jongh, Elton Jantjies, Siya Kolisi, Lwazi Mvovo, Bjorn Basson, Nizaam Carr, Scarra Ntubeni, Gio Aplon, Lionel Mapoe, Davon Raubenheimer, Ryno Benjamin and other players.
