Sadly a few more names could be added to the list of players overlooked due to their colour.
Pleased to read that he was honoured for his courage, play and determination during our difficult and sad past.
RIP Mr Adams.
RIP...embarrassingly I've never even heard of him...although he was a bit before my time...even older than my dad would have been if he lived to this day. ..and in 50 years we are going to tell similar stories...again, we seem to be destined to repeat the errors of the past.
That's mighty decent of you and AJ, not sure if you need to be embarrassed though, I haven't heard of him either. The system which amongst other things isolated ethnic groups literally wiped people of colour into non existence. The "Cape Argus" and the "Cape Times" as an example would never report on a sportsman or a sport played by people of colour. I know of a few who would have made the world stage, Johar Mosavel as an example, born in D6 was a member of the Queens Ballet but there would be others that we don't know across all sports in other provinces who would have been world class given the opportunity. I guess we only hear about them when they pass.
Respect to you and AJ.
