Sporting digest: Rugby Union

According to the Sunday Independent, a Johannesburg newspaper, a motion to expel the South Africa Rugby Football Union from the National Sports Council, the country's leading sports body, will be tabled at a meeting in the capital Pretoria next Saturday. The claim comes as senior black sports officials said they will ask the International Rugby Board to re- impose boycotts against South African rugby union. Dogged by charges of racism, financial mismanagement and nepotism, Sarfu is facing its biggest crisis yet as black rugby administrators rally to isolate the Union led by the controversial Louis Luyt. It is believed a rival organisation could be set up to replace Sarfu.
