SARU must make demands

See pics of the Springbok Sevens team departing for the Gold Coast Sevens.

SA Rugby is becoming, like the ANC, a “”\want to have” organization.

Should they not also demand from the government to have rugby shown more freely on SABC stations for their people?

At the moment you must subscribe to DSTV at an big cost to watch rugby on TV. What about the people they are forcing into rugby, should they not also be able to see first class rugby?

DSTV chan 200 is a waste of time if you are interested in rugby. The Compact subscription, at nearly R250 p/m, will show soccer even when spectators at the game is just about absent. But rugby, nooooooooo!

Did some big shot not long ago said there were more black rugby players in SA than white ones?
Yet the Kings demanded to have just about half their team consisting of foreign players.

So, SARU, don’t hide behind all sorts of funny decisions. Demand something in return.
