Time to look beyond race

I truly think this is outrageous! When is racism in our country going to end? If there aren't enough players "of colour", then where are players supposed to be dug up from? Will players "of colour" be flown in from other African countries like Uganda??? Just to fill the squad?

I believe that people should be chosen to represent a province or a country based on MERIT, and merit only. If you're the best, then you're the best. Irrespective of your colour, your creed or your class. These are antiquated ideas, and are no different than apartheid. It's a sad day in our country indeed.
