Should more teams integrate quotas like SA?

Post by Peaches »

Can you imagine how much better every team in the world would be if they had 8 Maro Itojes or 8 Cheslin Kolbe's on their team?

Yes, it should be proportional to national demographics - anything else would be racism.

New Zealand XV should be:

7 Kiwi whites
3 Maoris
2 Chinese
1 Samoan/Tongan/Fijian
1 Indian/Korean
1 English/Australian/South African.

All in the name of inclusivity and unity. The only way to bring people together is to delineate people by race.

In SA indians chinese brown yellow are black

Bear in mind a rugby team is 15 , so you can't cut someone in half

Therefore the 7 out of 15 is regarded as 50/50 in sa sports quota law and gets the green light to play

Our World Cup win with quota
Black : Mapimpi,Am,Kolbe,de Allende,Kolisi,Mbonambi and Beast is 7
White : Le Roux,Pollard,deKlerk,Vermeulen,duToit,deJager,Etzebeth,Malherbe is 8

We're stuffed if we pick Rieko, there's one of our Maori quota gone and our Samoan/Tongan/Fijian. We could fill the Chinese with Chinese Samoans but we've already used up our Samoan quota.

Wes Goosen will be happy with the new selection policy.

Edward Osei Nketia is the last hope for the ABs to catch up to SA.

Less than 10.20 is pretty quick. Just asking, shouldn't he rather concentrate on athletics.
In sa we have Cheslin Kolbe probably slower than 10.2 i am not sure though but his nephew Wayde Van Niekerk faster than 10.20 link below

Not sure if it stood. But South Africa have clearly, via political pressure, been pushing for players to represent the quotas they desire to have.

Not seen anything to suggest this is law in international Sporting teams from SA.
It may be an aspiration but can anyone show me the legislation?
If it was implemented surely they would be kicked out of international competition?

It doesn't have to be in law, nor has anybody claimed it is law. But I think when concerning South Africa's national quotas it has been the political interference which forces it.

I guess the Māori All Blacks are similar. No law but the racial requirement is still there.

Even if Maori were 50% of the population I for one would not have liked them embedded in a quota system in nz.

South Africa have found a solution to their unique problem. How does imposing a solution work with the other countries that do not have a problem with institutional systemic apartheid.

This

1. It is a 60% target (not quota)
2. it is not legally binding (although maybe politically difficult)
3. If there was direct government pressure/approval of team selection or selection criteria then South Africa would be in breach of many sporting codes including World Rugby and the IOC and subject to sanctions. (similar happened recently with Zimbabwe and cricket)

Seriously. There was a Maori in the team in 1973. Well I never :shock:

It was a serious question though. I remember reading some time ago that Maori made up 15% of the kiwi population yet the pro rugby percentage was way way higher. I can't remember but it may well have been north of 40% and in 2004 it was only 20%

:loL: Your only avoidance of the points and claims it has to be in law to exist is the full Bimbo C69.

As for my link, doesn't the fact quotas where challenged in court evidence there were quotas C69? Legally or not they were made at some point, even if they were defeated.

The powers that be demanding the team have a certain make-up and even enforcing it doesn't have to be something embedding in some law either. Regardless quotas don't have to exist in law to be real. I have no idea why your posts appear to demand that as the only proof.

The Maori All Blacks aren't the premier team in NZ rugby so really shouldn't be in this discussion (especially after sentences about political interference) - anymore than the NZ Samoans, NZ Marist, NZ Universities, NZ Tongans etc should be.

If it was a serious question (and I don't think it was at the time :lol: ) then I'll give you a serious answer.

Maori have historically not made up 15 % of the population, the percentage was a lot lower. In the 1920s NZ's population was roughly 1.3m, the Maori population was around 50k.
Furthermore, Maori mostly lived in rural areas (90%) pre the 1950s/1960s when the urban drift happened which also saw birth rates rise.

There have been Maori players in NZ representative teams since they were first selected. The first NZ representative team had a Maori captain. Aside from tours of SA every NZ team would have had Maori players.

The great Magpies teams of the 1920s (think Crusaders of the era with ABs on the reserves) were filled with Maori players who went on to the ABs. Hawkes Bay had a high percentage of Maori in the area and the players filtered through.

Regarding more players in the pro era, of course talented Maori are going to move into pro rugby if the opportunity is there, but in the past players had to make a living. It was harder to hold down a job/run a farm etc, if you're off touring, so much fewer numbers of players would have come through.

The discussion is about teams that have had racial make-ups, of course the Maori All Blacks are a valid discussion point. No one claimed there was political interference in them either.

The discussion is about a national team, and the teams that directly feed into that national team, and transformation or quotas in that context. You can include the Maori team if you want but it's an entity that sits outside those three factors so not sure how useful it is at all.

Australia doesnt keep stats on race (because it's a BS social construct IMO) however based on 'ancestry' we would be

3 Australians
3 Poms
2 Irish
2 Scots
1 Chinese
1 Italian
1 German
1 indigenous
1 other

I think we'd have to reach pretty deep into club rugby to find the Chinese player. Quick go though

1. Bell
2. Nasser
3. Zander
4. Rory Arnold
5. Phillip
6. Dempsey
7. McReight
