What is it about Africa that makes racism so popular?

BLACK POWER: Super rugby has launched the international careers of players like Beast Mtawarira. Now South Africa are being asked to consider a franchise for black players.

The South African union is being urged to consider an exclusively black franchise for any Super rugby expansion just days after it questioned hosting the New Zealand Maori team on racial grounds.
Eastern Province rugby boss Cheeky Watson, father of controversial Springbok Luke Watson, is the man behind the quest.

He has urged Sport and Recreation Minister Makhenkesi Stofile to intervene and ensure the "Super 15 franchise" issue is on the agenda for an upcoming Sanzar meeting to be held this week in Dubai where the World Cup Sevens is being played.

It will be an interesting outcome with Saru having last week said they could probably not host the New Zealand Maori sides because of a President's Council ruling that prevented national teams playing sides that were selected on racial grounds.

The Springboks are hoping to play NZ Maori in June in Soweto.

Now there is clearly a push to have a racially-aligned side in Super rugby. It comes at a time when Sanzar are considering expansion plans and new ways to improve their competitions.

Sounds like they are blissfully unaware of how much Pakeha blood many Maori have. Or Cook Island blood or Chinese blood or Tongan blood or Samoan blood ..... ;)
