Over the weekend former Rugby Player of the Year, Ashwin Willemse, made headlines when he stormed off the SuperSport set during a live broadcast. He said he was tired of being labelled a "quota player" and he refused to be "patronised by two individuals (Naas Botha and Nick Mallett) who played in an apartheid/segregated era".
