Are quotas taking rugby backwards? - Sunday Independent | IOL.co.za

Are quotas taking rugby backwards? - Sunday Independent | IOL.co.za | Mainstream Sports | Scoop.it
Chevawn's Tut Group's insight:

Although this article is quite one-sided and controversial, the journalist proposes some interesting arguments about the negative consequences that racial quotas are having in SA rugby. He talks about the lack of development programmes in townships for promoting rugby and therefore the tendency for teams to hastely "buy" black players from other provinces. He states that quotas are having negative effects on white players as well as black players. Black players are assumed to have been included simply because of their race instead of their skill and as a result have to prove themselves more than white players. Likewise, white players are denied selection for teams based on their skin colour.

It's a useful article because it provides valid arguments for the debate on whether or not quotas should be used in SA rugby.
