Racism in South African rugby post #1  quote:



Tonight South Africa won the Rugby world cup however if you are a rugby fan the next time you see South Africa it's wont be the world cup winning side why? simple the South African rugby board is racist to it's core racist that is against whites.

As of now the South Africans want players picked on skin colour not talent. apprently the team has to reflect the predominant race in that country - blacks. This affirmiative action policy is crap and efficitvley means that a white player has little chance of representing his country and his place could go to a black player who may not be as good. The thing is can you imagine the outcry if the Scottish or English or French rugby team said sorry no blacks this country is predominantly white you would never hear the end of it and the board and manager would have to resign thier post so how come when the Saffas do it is OK is it suddenly not racist if blacks are doing it to whites? I thought Mandella and others fought for equality not revenge?

It's also worth noting that on the TV right now there are black south Africans celebrating, the S.African PM a black man was on the podium with the victorious team and Mandella sent a message of support asking the team to do it for South Africa. It does not matter the colour of skin if you love your country and are good enough that should be the only pre requsite for a place in the team.

"They [the players] know me and know that I never want to be strong-armed into playing a guy because of the colour of his skin. That is a dreadful thing to do to a player. With me it's a case of if you deserve to be in the starting XV or not and the coloured players are aware of that." - Jake White soon to be the ex S. African coach.

There are more than thirty golf courses in Glasgow and I have played at the Rouken Glen Golf Glasgow, which is situated in Eastwood. It is a well-maintained parkland course with wooded features suitable for all abilities. It has 18 holes. You can have a virtual tour of the Golf Course on You can communicate with other players who play at Rouken Glen Golf Course and arrange games.
