FOR­MER JAGUARS PLAYER PHAKA­MANI NGEMA (38) DUR­BAN

CityPress - - Sport -

I will sup­port the Spring­boks in the rugby World Cup. I will al­ways sup­port South African rugby, re­gard­less of the prob­lems. I just hope that we find a work­ing so­lu­tion, not a po­lit­i­cal one. We don’t just need to trans­form the se­lec­tion process. We need to en­sure that there’s a par­a­digm shift away from the old style of South African rugby. Trans­for­ma­tion will only take place once the way in which money is pumped into the game changes. Right now, the old money drives rugby and al­lows the old or­der to re­main en­trenched. Maybe it’s time for the [Pa­trice] Mot­sepes of the world to come into the game. Siya Kolisi and Cor­nal Hen­dricks should have made the squad.
