DAVID ISAACSON: Ashwin Willemse exposes the depth of rugby's race problem
'I’m not going to be patronised by two individuals that have played in apartheid, segregated era and come and want to undermine'
That stunned me. I couldn’t believe that Willemse was ever labelled a quota player. He was a heck of a wing, and at his zenith he was one of the most deserving recipients of the Springbok jersey.
He had the misfortune of being part of the country’s worst-yet World Cup squad in 2003, but it says something that he was one of only two backline players (along with Jaque Fourie) to survive to the next tournament, which South Africa won.
