The new conventional Springbok model, which is radicalized, turns green


Cape Town – Dozens of home based players will be taken
Springbok succession planning next year as part of a radical new contract
a strategy announced by SA Rugby on Saturday.

Players will be ranked per seat – with the next one
birthday talent also brought to a significantly expanded pool – and that
who are trading in South Africa will receive additional payments from
their provinces – funded by SA Rugby.

Keeping up with politics is it
intention to formally abolish the 30-cap rule for foreign-based players. The
the regulation came into force at the start of the 2017 season and provides for it
only players with 30 or more Springbok blades will be eligible for national
choice if they were playing for a group abroad.

And SA Rugby has written to the top foreigners
clubs and tournaments (as well as advise other nations) that they will strictly
to impose the requirements of Rule 9 of the World Rugby, which determines when
and how often the club's agents have to be freed for international tasks.

"We have anxiety about how to keep it
players in the country since the game became professional more than 20 years ago
and the bottom line is that the class is too weak and the economy of the South
African Rugby is too small to compete, "said Rassie Erasmus, director of Rugby at
SA Rugby.

"A player in South Africa can win more than one
bimonthly contract in Japan than he can if he wins the World Cup
the Springboks this year. This is the reality that we must face.

"In recent years we have been concentrating on trying to
maintain a small number of high profile players. But it was a small group
and many of these players end up leaving anyway. Last season the contracted
players only accounted for 38% of their available time.

"After doing our work, the new strategy
they could see up to 75 players in the design and existence of the Springbok succession
it is financially rewarded for this.

"We have to interrupt the model."

Erasmus also explained the new strategy
with direct contact with overseas clubs.

"We have told overseas clubs that we will do so
to apply regulation 9 and will require our players up to 14 weeks
of the year. If clubs do not like it then they can not do it
signing the player. "

However, he said his biggest asset
new system was more efficient succession planning.

"The only solution that would hold everyone
happy would be if we had enough money to pay the players we wanted to keep as
whatever they wanted to take – but that's not the world we live in, "he said.

"We have to deal with practical realities
and remain focused on our goal, which is the best-performing sector 23
players who really want to play for Springboks and are ready to do
sacrifices if they play here or abroad.

"We only have a limited budget to do this, but
we have many players who have the ability to become Springboks. So, we
can give them this message in a practical way.

"They will know there is a future for them
with Springboks and that they can climb the succession ladder if they
the game is worth it. "

Erasmus said the new model would be disseminated
risk that is inherent in the old model, which gave contracts in a small number
of the players. "In this way, we encourage and encourage a wider group, we subsidize
franchises giving more players additional revenue and profits
in proper succession planning, "he said.

Erasmus said the plan had been explained to
the main elite players of the players – the franchise directors –
union, MyPlayers.

Explain that it would be the ranking
are reviewed annually and mechanisms will be created
during the adjustment period in exceptional circumstances.
