The ANC Youth League has vowed to disrupt the Springboks’ three-Test series against Ireland because of a lack of transformation in the sport.
Twelve players of colour have been included in Allister Coetzee's 31-man squad for the series.
'It’s not enough to have black players included, only for them to sit on the bench, we want to see them on the field,’ Njabulo Nzuza, the league’s secretary-general, told the Weekend Argus.
Nzuza denied their fight for transformation was a publicity stunt ahead of the local elections.
‘We will take criticism, but the fight for transformation in our sports is one we will not shy away from,' he said.
