Keep politics out of sport!

South African sport & South Africa as a country will never improve because of poor mentality like this.

Sport, just like all over the world, should remain a case of building your best team on merit, not politics.

What has happened in the past is exactly that, it's happened, it's over.

Move on and build a strong, united South Africa regardless of the colour of a person's skin.

Fielding a "quota" team, instead of a team on merit, will certainly never ever bring silverware home.

I'm sure true sportsmen will agree & say, "select me on merit and not the colour of my skin, because I want to earn my place in the team & not get there by default."

Yours truly,

A South African Coloured
