‘We can’t deny that in certain instances, players who were overage have come through the system,’ said the former Springbok stalwart. ‘But, because of it, we are now able to make our selection process more watertight than it has ever been before.

‘We can’t point any fingers, but we have been made aware of players coming through our ranks who have been guilty of such misdemeanours. Unfair play in any form is something that myself and Sarla feel very strongly about. It is our responsibility to ensure that every player is on an even playing field and competes on equal footing with his or her peers.
