Rugby: SA Rugby says Boks are not for sale

# Rugby: SA Rugby’s CEO Rian Oberholzer has written an open letter to South Africans to allay fears that the Springboks are being sold. Oberholzer says SA Rugby is engaged in conversations with a private equity company to invest in its future commercial growth. If the deal is approved, it will entail a company investing in a minority shareholding in the commercial rights to SA Rugby’s activities. SA Rugby will remain the majority shareholder. Oberholzer says this process is not about a quick cash injection; it is about securing the long-term financial sustainability of the game.
