Currie Cup players to show their support against racism

6:07 am on 12 September 2008

South African rugby players in this weekend's Currie Cup matches will wear jerseys with the slogan 'No To Racism' on them, in response to a racist attack on a black fan during the Springboks' final Tri-Nations test against Australia in Johannesburg last month.

SARU president Oregan Hoskins says it's important for South Africa Rugby to make a strong statement in the wake of the racist attack and he's pleased that all their local players and Springboks and the provincial unions and their sponsors have supported this.

The SARU has offered a reward to help find the three white men responsible for an attack on the female fan.
