Got kg's dad's proffesion wrong. He is a neurosurgeon not lawyer.Yes, what QDK must understand is we living in a time of tokenism, virtue signaling and wokeness. Regardless of our beliefs and values, we need to uphold the façade.
But seriously, he is a previous captain and senior player. His teammates have most likely been subjected to some form of discrimination in the past and/or recently. Not all players of colour in the squad are former Saints boys with lawyer fathers. It seems odd to me that he would not consider their feelings or where they stand/kneel on the subject? It also seems odd to me that he would leave them in the lurch mere hours before a must win world cup fixture. Sometimes you need to take one for the team de Kock.
CSA is not blameless either. Why wait 90 minutes before a must win world cup fixture to announce the directive making kneeling mandatory?? These clowns have learnt absolutely nothing from past world cup calamities. Always looking for an opportunity to score an own goal!! Malakas!!! 18 months they've had to sort this s hit out!!!
Also seems odd to me that he would jeopardize his career over something as benign as taking the knee? The ideologies of the BLM are certainly not benign but the physical act of taking a knee is. Why wouldn't he? Is he opposed to BLM? Is he a raving racist? Does he support the concept of BLM but objects to taking a knee for religious or other reasons? Like, we need some answers de KOCK.
Rest I totally agree.
