I will support the Springboks even if few black players make the cut. Transformation in rugby is not of coach Heyneke Meyer’s making but is deep-rooted. Even the few black players who wear the national team colours are “blacks” from privileged Model C schools. Those in the Springbok team are not your typical black boys from the townships. I don’t think Meyer is racist. I believe he was caught in a bad situation, where he had to master a very difficult balancing act – there is an abundance of good white players playing at the highest level, and few black faces.
