    WP and South african rugby rugby fans, all is not lost, take courage, Fikile has a plan for you…another one ! :Transformation lagging: Mbalula
    2014-04-05 22:11

    Fikile Mbalula : News24

    Johannesburg – The South African Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee (Sascoc) president Gideon Sam and Sports Minister Fikile Mbalula said athletics, cricket, football, netball and rugby are falling behind with transformation and development.

    Sam said an Eminent Persons Group (EPG) had been created to monitor the progress of federations.

    “On 25 March we received the pilot study on the status of transformation in sport and the findings were shocking,” said Mbalula at a Sascoc general meeting held at Olympic House on Saturday.

    “Little has been done to transform and the issue of grassroots transformation and participation of blacks is declining drastically.

    “We found poorly maintained infrastructure and a lack of willingness to transform despite the agreement as in the Sports Charter.”

    Mbalula then announced far-reaching measures to address the issues at stake.

    The quota system as instructed in the national Sports Plan of 2011 will be aggressively implemented said Mbalula.

    “We will insist on a change from a 50-50 proportion to a 40-60 representation both provincial and nationally.”

    Development plans from the five bodies – athletics, cricket, football, netball and rugby – will be sought according to the minister.

    Mbalula warned of harsh punishment if there was any form of resistance to these measures.

    If any resistance was met, Mbalula said government could : withdraw funding to bodies that fail to comply; withdraw national colours to federations holding back, rule that utilising bidding and hosting regulations to be illegal, de-register any body that fails to transform and bar sponsorship to anyone hostile to transformation.

    Sam, meanwhile, warned there was an air of complacency about South African sport.

    “In sport its simply not about you as an individual in the Federation,” said Sam.

    “It’s the total commitment to what you are doing and not bailing out when the boat starts leaking.

    “When the boat starts sinking then we see the true leaders standing up and I must warn you that we at Sascoc are committed and every day Sascoc CEO, Mr Tubby Reddy, refers to our plan that extends to 2017.”

    On the subject of the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Scotland in July and August, Chef de Mission, Patience Shikwambana, said 17 sports codes would be represented by Team South Africa including three that will include Elite Athletes with Disabilities (EAD).

    No qualifying events as such will be used for team selection said Shikwambana.

    Sascoc would be guided by the International Federations and the Sascoc selection criteria superseded the International Federation’s criteria. “Individual and team athletes must rank in the top five in their events amongst the Commonwealth nations,” said Shikwambana.

    “Deadline for final team lists is 31 May and at this early stage, the projected team size is 152 (with 86 male and 66 female competitors).

    “At the last games in New Delhi, India, Team South Africa won 33 medals and team management are targeting 36 medals at these Games.”

    “If any resistance was met, Mbalula said government could : withdraw funding to bodies that fail to comply; withdraw national colours to federations holding back, rule that utilising bidding and hosting regulations to be illegal, de-register any body that fails to transform and bar sponsorship to anyone hostile to transformation.”

    How much do government REALLY fund SARU?

    Proper coaching, at grassroots level, costs money and that should be a government issue as well and an education issue, it is impossible to attract the majority of the population when they are all starving.

    They need to work harder with rugby and football for sure, because they have money unlike netball, athletics that honestly are struggling for funding, mostly because of maladministration.

    Cricket won’t ever be “transformed” in a third world country, it is an elitist sport.

    How long before sport is completely privatized?

    I see NZ rugby slowly slipping down a slippery slope, RSA the are down the slope already with flashes of brilliance or a reliance on aus sides to expand so rhey can be competitive. Aus rugby gets stronger then they expand and then let the likes of RSA look good.

    kia ora Wallabie, perhaps you guys should win the Bledisloe back after ten years or so before predicting NZ rugby is ” slipping down a slippery slope”
    :D

    Super rugby does not equate to international rugby, thats like saying that “altitude” is a factor IN SA.

    the Abs since 2010 have proven beyond doubt that it isnt :lol:

    to say NZ rugby is on a slippery slope when they have won the Rugby championship UNDEFEATED for its short existence seems contrary to your post.

    Thisara roars! The Sri Lankans charge down the pitch and grab Sanga.. This is as comprehensive a win as you get.. Malinga comes in and jumps over the lot.. Mahela hugs Dilshan, Dilshan hugs Sanga.. Kohli hugs Sanga.. Sri Lanka have broken the jinx in style and what a time to do it! The last game for both Sanga and Mahela and they will go back champions. India didn’t have the total to challenge Sri Lanka, who just strolled to the target despite the loss of four wickets..Malinga keeps his 100% record as a captain intact.

    Sanga gets carried around the ground on the shoulders of his team-mates. Now Mahela also gets a ride on the shoulders..The celebration keeps going on..

    Dilshan says, “Last five world cups we lost them, but today is a great feeling to come back and win it. Today one of the three guys put their head up to do something for the team. Fantastic win for Sri Lanka. Good farewell for two happy guys.”

    Marvan Atapattu says, “What a way to finish the game! Sanga saved his best of the last innings. I think the first session is where we won the game.”

    It’s now Sanath Jayasuriya’s turn. He says, “The bowling was superb and then both Mahela and Sanga batted very well. Restricting them to 130 was the key. Even though we lost a few wickets early on, Mahela and Sanga are big game players”

  • 327

    Mahela says, “We finally managed to break the jinx. Thanks so much to family and friends but this one is for SL fans who have been waiting since 1996. It wasn’t a normal match. Lot of emotions as this was the last T20. It hasn’t sunk in yet and it will take a couple of days to get the feeling.”

  • 328

    Congrats Sri Lanka, i missed the game and only watched the last 4 overs

    Brilliant Win and a great send of to your Greatest player.

    Angelo Mathews says, “Sri Lanka this is for you. I am glad the whole team did it for Sanga and Mahela.”

    Rangana Herath says, “This is the best send off for Sanga and Mahela. After 18 years, this is a different high.”

    @ Pietman:
    Thought I saw already these bold statements several time?
    :wink:
    The Stormers are a professional sport unit, they survive on what they earn so this year result will bite them hard
    Sascoc’s Gideon Sam on the other hand don’t have to show any profit to survive financially, or as PdV once said: : Talks are cheap, money buys the whiskey”
    So let him talk :)

    Mark Keo was mos n groot WP fan?
    Sien hy skryf hulle lekker af.

    Anyone asked to pay to watch the Stormers for the remainder of the season should be charged half the price, writes MARK KEOHANE in his Business Day column.

    In a month’s time I’ll probably write that anyone still going to Newlands should be given free entry.

    It is a crime to charge people to watch what was on offer at the weekend. It is also a crime to appoint a director of rugby, who laments the dire state of the team’s approach and then says nothing will change until the end of the season for fear of confusing the players. Gert Smal should rather have said nothing on his appointment. All he did was further confuse the situation.

  • 332

    They were awful against a Tahs side that took a beating in Durban, yet their captain and coach spoke of positives.

    The pleasantries are indicative of a team that has become comfortable and stale. They are all mates, both coaches and players. And now even the coaches and president are mates.

  • 333

    Grant is no longer good enough and in Coetzee’s tenure he hasn’t picked a flyhalf good enough to influence the outcome of a Super Rugby play-off match.

    Teams who win Super Rugby possess game-changing halfbacks. The Stormers don’t have such a pairing this season and haven’t had these halfbacks since Coetzee took charge.

    100% correct… supporters of the team have mentioned it for years but Toetie sees something in Grant that nobody else seems to notice. Same applied to Duvenhage and now also applies to Schreuder

    Mark Keohane is a Bulls fan btw… he has mentioned it on many occasions..

    Smal will on Monday meet with Stormers coaches – Allister Coetzee, Robbie Fleck and Matthew Proudfoot – to see how their systems are working.

    Smal wants to have a look at the team’s scrums, lineouts, kick-offs, attack and their approach to the game in certain aspects.

    Smal also emphasised that people may have a misconception that he wants to turn the Stormers into a run-at-all-costs type of team.

    “I’m striving towards a perfect playing style, not one where we run from everywhere and throw silly passes,” Smal told Die Burger’s website.

    I think if Keo was a stormer his article would be singing the praise of Gerts second coming, not reminding everyone of the 75 pointer before Gert left.

    On the brightside, currently they are not running from anywhere, so its the ideal start?

    09h45 @ robzim:
    Stormers / WP are where the Lions were when Prinsloo was our President.

    If they don’t change the “old boys club” currently running Rugby in Cape Town, they’ll continue to sink.

    The coffers full of money can only have an effect for so long.

    This seasons results are a direct result of 5 years of neglect in fixing the top structures.

    At the Lions it took us 3 years to get rid of the President who was indecisive and unprofessional, and it’s taken the “new” President (K de Klerk) nearly 5 years to weed out SOME (but not all) of the shyte that infested the organisation.

    Gert Smal alone CANNOT change the fundamental faults that have infected the WP / Stormers internal organs. Those changes need to be initiated and driven by Rugby LOVERS WITHIN the WP structures, and even then it’s a long, drawn out issue.

    Good luck WP Rugby.

    Stormers stand-in skipper Duane Vermeulen said despite the defeat he remained optimistic for the rest of the season.

    “We had a good game plan and executed it well until half-time, but silly little errors during the second half proved our undoing,” said Vermeulen.

    “When you’re on the back foot it’s hard to keep your hands down at the ruck.

    “Just the second half, we couldn’t execute.

    “There were slight errors, little small mistakes that crept in and that was our problem.”

    The first step would be to get rid of Dr. Joseph Goebbels, his gameplan is outdated by now and everyone sees through it.
