Cape Town - SA Rugby president Mark Alexander on Friday expressed condolences to the family of Zandisile John Ncinane, who will be laid to rest on Saturday.

The former Border Rugby Union president passed away earlier this month.

Ncinane, who also served on the National Sports Council and was an ex-ANC parliamentarian, served as Border president in the early 2000s.

He was actively involved in other sports as well, including athletics, where he was one of the founding members of Athletics South Africa.
