RE: Time to block overseas players from representing the boks again

Hey Sharkbok, this mass exodus of SA players leaving our shores is only going to get worse, seriously. I don't think HM is willing to do his work in finding young players that are already available right at his door step.
I don't think players who leaves SA shores should be given the nod ahead of those who are already available at home. AB and the OZs have a better system than we have, any player that leaves their country doesn't get selected. SA has become extremely lenient in that respect.
Having said that, this is a very short career for these guys, they need to make money while they can. I think Habana could be forgiven for joining Racing Metro at the end of the season, he's done a lot for his Club and his country, and that is a timely move for him at this stage to cash in.
