RE: South African rugby quota System.
An article in the NZ Herald a while back on this topic

http://www.nzherald.co.nz/sport/news/art...d=11726901

Quote:But Mains is also disturbed about the fall from competitive grace of our old enemy, South Africa.

And he blames the republic's controversial quota system for that," said Mains.

Quote:Unfortunately the quota system in South Africa is showing there are a number of players there that are not up to international level and therefore it breaks down their whole system.

Quote:"I just feel the only recovery road for South Africa is for them to say: 'right, with our national team, we pick the best players'. Now some black and coloured players will be there because some of them are very, very fine rugby players. There's not many rugby teams around the world who wouldn't have wanted Bryan Habana over the last 10 years. So they have some players who would get there on merit but they have too many weaknesses in their team now.
