That backline Bok coach from the under 19 Kings really earned his salt tonight

RE: Springboks vs France
SARU so desperate for sponsorship, they accepted a deal with MTN - thereby damaging their relationship with long time Super Rugby sponsor Vodacom, who is a direct rival to MTN.
At least the Jersey looks amazing though:
SARU must be desperate for cash to allow that yellow blob. Why it isn't inverted with the letters MTN in yellow god only knows.
French are without their players from the T14 final, and if the boks manage to limp past the tired and depleted frogs, there will be a painful few more months of rugby articles about Bok Rugby's "New Dawn" and Alastair's "Road to Redemption".
..Until the Rugby Championship results send them scrambling again, that is.
RE: 14 in a row!
In other (rather embarrassing) news, South Africa is now ranked 7th, the lowest since the ranking system was implemented in 03.
Coetzee is bullish on the Boks chances since this year, he's had time to plan where they are going to be training, and how their bags are being transported:
"I'm done with the planning. The logistical planning of where we're flying with which airlines we're using and where we're staying ... that's done," Coetzee said, adding that he even knows where the Boks are training on their European tour in November.
I think that is the job description of a logistics manager, but that's just me..
Interesting thing is that the RWC19 draw is taking place on 10 May, before the Boks have had a chance to show the world how well Coetzee's logistics planning has revolutionised his teams play. This means we're effectively locked ourselves into the pool of death. Though with the aggressive transformation targets set out by Razzmatazz we're probably not going to be a force anyways:
The document forecasts that 60% of full-time staff will be black South Africans by 2018.
The document forecasts that 45% of national players (male) will be black South Africans by 2018.
The document forecasts that 80% of national players (female) will be black South Africans by 2018.
The document forecasts that 60% of nationally accredited coaches will be black South Africans by 2018.
ASA will have to assign 10% more African women to its executive board committees within the next year.
The document forecasts that 84% of males will be black South Africans by 2018.
The document forecasts that 40% of females will be black South Africans by 2018.
The document forecasts that 100% of coaches will be black South Africans by 2018.
The document forecasts that 84% of physiotherapists will be black South Africans by 2018.
The sports ministry actually expects black representation to decrease in South African football by 2018 with full time black staff members decreasing from 94% in 2014 to 70% by December 2018.
Likewise it expects a drop from 88% in 2014 to 75% of Black African players which will be made up for by a 13% increase in “generic black” players.
There is however expected to be a 5% increase across the board in female black players at the national level.
In September 2016, the CSA declared that with immediate effect the national team to play an average minimum of 54% black players and average minimum of 18% black African players over the season.
The targets will be an average of the cumulative representation across all three formats in a season.
The document forecasts that 60% of males will be generic black South Africans by 2019.
It also notes that that 60% of female cricket players will be generic black South Africans by 2019.
The document has also forecast that 80% of South African umpires will be black by 2020.
The document forecasts that 85% of full-time staff will be black South Africans by 2018.
It forecasta that 95% of male netball players will be black by 2018.
It forecasts that 71% of male netball players will be black by 2018.
It has also forecast that 80% of coaches will be black by 2018.
In order to reach a number of those targets serious changes will need to be made, and you can’t help but feel that various sporting codes are really going to struggle.
Whether or not Afriforum have any success in their endeavours remains to be seen, but interesting times ahead for South African sport.
