Cape Town - Five black Springbok players have approached Cosatu to take up issues such as being sidelined in matches, the trade federation said on Monday.

Western Cape Cosatu chairperson Motlatsi Tsubane said two white Springboks had also “put their weight behind the matter” and felt not enough had been done to transform the team.

“Unfortunately for obvious reasons we are not in a position to give names because, at the end of the day, we still have to sit down and engage with them so they can give a clear overview of what is happening,” Tsubane said.

He said the players were afraid to speak out for fear of being victimised.

“In the days to come, we are going to set up a meeting with them.”

The Springboks lost 37-25 to Argentina in their final Rugby Championship Test in Durban on Saturday.

Cosatu provincial secretary Tony Ehrenreich insisted that a more racially representative team be chosen for the next Test against Argentina in Buenos Aires on Saturday.
