The South African Rugby Union would be having their elections on the 6th of April. It would be held in a hotel in Newlands, Cape Town where they will also debate on the downward spiral that the sport has taken up in the country and whether this is an indication that the sport is on the way out.
Those who are fans of the game probably need to voice their concerns and see that the improvements that are required are incorporated in the team structures and games. There was a recent Super Rugby match held between South Africa’s Lions and the Sunwolves of Jaguares at Ellis Park. Sunwolves put up quite a fight for the win which brought a fright in the Lions which they camouflaged well. They clung on and clinched a win that was well earned through the frantic pace of the game. Overall the game was a true one of Super Rugby standards. Hence, it is too early to dismiss the game and its future in the country, but the new governing body who would be elected need to bring in change to make it happen.
