WHAT HAP­PENED| WHILE CRICKET SA re­ceived praise in Par­lia­ment for the suc­cess it had achieved on the cricket field, as well as with trans­for­ma­tion, the rugby ad­min­is­tra­tion was crit­i­cised. ANC MPs are par­tic­u­larly con­cerned about the too-white rugby teams and coaches, songs aimed at whip­ping up emo­tions and the old na­tional flag be­ing dis­played at rugby sta­di­ums. The Proteas are now the lead­ing one-day team in the world.

WHAT THE OTH­ERS SAID RAP­PORT SAYS THAT the sat­is­fy­ing bal­ance of eight white and seven black play­ers in the Proteas is en­tirely the re­sult of the suc­cess achieved in the past two se­ries. The sting of race quo­tas has been drawn by win­ners. Die Burger says that all 15 play­ers can now per­form to their full po­ten­tial, be­cause they have the sup­port of all. Beeld says that SA’s qual­ity play­ers, white and black, in­spire hope for suc­cess in the world cup.
