Jack: ‘SS teams 60% black’

2011-08-15 00:00

CAPE TOWN — Makhaya Jack, a TV commentator and former player for SARU (in the old segregated national union for coloured players), this week said the minister of sport should issue an ultimatum to provinces to transform.

He believes the minister should also create structures separate from SARU to evaluate and monitor transformation with the aim to make SA teams at least 60% black.

“SARU is sitting on a transformation charter, but nothing is happening. You see good black players in the Grant Khomo and Craven Week teams, but they disappear when it comes to the Vodacom and Super Rugby tournaments, as well as in the national teams,” said Jack.
