    Model of the story, get yourself a coloured coach who can give them back straight.

    I think this is from an interview with PDiv a while ago (could be a few years).

    In other words, from what I understand, coaches are still required to select a certain ratio, or quota if you like, but the term quota is not used to specify this.

    Yea thats interesting, pretty vague though and doesn't specify whether he is talking about super/local/test rugby. Even so i find it funny how some people see De Villiers as the pinnacle of stupidity, sarcasm and lies when talking to the media about anything rugby related, but a model of integrity when he is telling the media there may be some form of quota in existence. ;)

    Anyway i don't see much more to add to this thread, might be best to leave it be.

    Ok, I thought the quote was quite revealing in it's own right, but up to you how you interpret it. Guess it'll just have to be down to deduction and what you see as more likely. No issues with you wanting hard proof if your intuition says no quotas. For me I think it's pretty much common knowledge there is still a gentlemen's agreement (quotas by another name) in existence, but I could be wrong.

    In fairness, WP would have many more Coloured players if the Blou Bulle didn't poach them all.

    To be fair, that's RWC's fault. If it's the Bok or their precious logo to move off the front, it should be the logo, every time. Dolts.

    Gurthro Steenkamp, for one. Although I still cannot believe you've been so slack as to let Toulouse get their hands on him; I reckon you've let a real propping gem slip there.

    The perfect example is Boland. Apart from the poaching we show what can be done if a province have a rugby culture. Thats the problem with dose like Hoskins, Wakefield and the politicians. They keep on critising the top structure teams and dont do anything at the roots of rugby. Boland community is a rugby one all over the province and half their CC squad is coloured players.

    Boland province have the most clubs in SA and easily 70% coloured players.

    Hoskins is just as dumb as the Minister. "It have to start at the board room", NO you dumb doos, it starts at grassroots levels, at the bottom. This will never going to end.

    Wonder how a guy feels when he knows his only in the team because of a racial quota. Don't think any sportsman no matter how desperate will accept that or will like to get in that way and will mostly decline.
    But on the other hand they are doing a good job to make some believe they were actually good enough to be part of a national team where everyone knows he's not up to scratch.
