WHAT HAP­PENED

THE ON­GO­ING CON­TRO­VERSY about the na­tional rugby team’s em­blem may fi­nally be re­solved af­ter a meet­ing at­tended by Sports Min­is­ter Makhenkesi Stofile, his deputy and SA Rugby Union boss Ore­gan Hoskins. The con­sen­sus saw Gov­ern­ment re­solve to keep the Spring­bok em­blem on the team’s jer­sey – though not without con­di­tions. THE STAR quoted Stofile as say­ing that as part of the com­pro­mise the King Protea would be the main em­blem on the left hand side of the jer­sey, with the Spring­bok sym­bol placed on the right. The Ci­ti­zen re­ported Hoskins was elated with the out­come of the meet­ing.
