    Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

    SARU NEWS RELEASE

    SARU CONFIRMS DE VILLIERS AS SPRINGBOK COACH

    The South African Rugby Union has confirmed the appointment of Peter de Villiers as head coach of the Springboks.

    The announcement follows the meeting of the Presidents’ Council earlier today in Newlands, to discuss and confirm the recommendation of the appointment committee.

    After a thorough selection process, involving tests and interviews with the four shortlisted candidates, SARU appointed De Villiers with immediate effect.

    SARU president, Oregan Hoskins, said: “Peter comes with a good record and strong recommendation and I am delighted that he has accepted this huge challenge.

    “South African rugby is on top of the world at the moment and SARU is confident that the new coach will build on this great momentum and move us into a new era.

    “Peter has created history today by becoming the first black person to coach the Springboks. He is a strong leader and a coach with a proven track record. We trust that the rugby fraternity will support him and the team as we embark on an exciting new phase of rugby in South Africa.

    “I am sure that Peter will make a major contribution to our rugby,” said Hoskins

    I wonder if they have chosen the best coach in the country, or the best black coach.
