It has been the No 1 priority for me since I assumed the presidency and for the Executive Council," said Mr Hoskins.<br><br> "We started this new approach in October 2012 with a Transformation Indaba, since when we have worked very hard and with great determination to deliver a Plan to guide our sport all the way to the Rugby World Cup in Japan in 2019.<br><br> "Our document is aligned with the governmentandrsquo;s National Sports Plan and is definitely not only about the number of black players on the field. It has six focus areas: demographic representation; access to the game; skills and capacity development; performance; community development and social responsibility and corporate governance.<br><br> "Within those six dimensions are 71 key performance indicators; for instance we want introduce 150 000 new primary schoolchildren to the game by 2019; accredit 1 500 new administrators; raise preferential procurement to 40% from targeted suppliers; increase the number of women in administration to 40% and raise the black representation in our national teams."<br><br> Jurie Roux, CEO of SARU, was at pains to emphasise to media that the STP was not a quota system.<br><br> "The STP is a road map," said Roux. "We have a destination in mind and know there will be short cuts and at other times we may stray from the path. There are no punishments if our targets are not met but without a structured objective, backed by implementation plans we would be nowhere.<br><br> "Transformation is a critical business imperative in South Africa and if we had not taken this new approach to what had been an organic process up until recently, we would have put our sport in peril of becoming marginalised.<br><br> "It will unlock untapped talent and has the potential to awaken corporate interest in rugby where it may previously not have existed. The simple facts are that the majority of rugby supporters and players andndash; at schoolboy and club level andndash; in South Africa are black; 84% of this countryandrsquo;s under-18s are black African andndash; and we want them in our game in some way."<br><br> Roux said that rugby was entirely unrecognisable from the game that returned form isolation in 1992, countering the perception that "nothing had changed".<br><br> "SARU has had a black president for 17 years; our Executive Council is 75% black; weandrsquo;ve had a black Springbok coach; the leading Springbok try scorer of all time is black, and the DHL Western Province team that won the Absa Currie Cup in October averaged 40% black representation and had a black coach and captain.<br><br> "Rugby is massively transformed but we know we have challenges: only one in 35 schools in provinces such as KZN, Mpumalanga, Limpopo and North West play rugby for example, which provides unique challenges for those provinces compared to the Western and Eastern Cape where 60% of school rugby is played.<br><br> "And we know that we are only judged on representation in the Springbok team. Weandrsquo;ve spent R500m on development in rugby since 1992 and can point to significant advances but the Bok team is the only measure on which we are judged.<br><br> "We understand that and we also understand that is also unfair to put that pressure on the Springbok coach without offering him any assistance andndash; his teams can only reflect what is going on at the elite end of the domestic game.<br><br> "Since we started the process of developing this plan the provinces have shown their bona fides and black representation is increasing. We will reap those rewards over the coming seasons and decades."<br><br> Roux said that the STP would be monitored by a new SARU department andndash; Strategic Performance Management andndash; which had been established out of the old Development Department in December. Specially developed software had also been designed to track progress.<br><br> Mr Hoskins said: "The passing of the STP was a watershed moment for South African rugby. I am looking forward to seeing the progress we achieve over the coming years."<br><br> 2015-02-25 DHL Stormers go top of the standings http://www.fscheetahs.co.za/news.aspx?newsid=/2801/DHL-Stormers-go-top-of-the-standings- http://www.fscheetahs.co.za DHL Stormers go top of the standings andndash; Vodacom Super Rugby Round 2 Review<br><br> <br><br> The DHL Stormers moved to the top of the Vodacom Super Rugby log as the Cell C Sharks recorded their first win of 2015 on Saturday.<br><br> <br><br> And while the coastal sides impressed, for the two teams from Gauteng, the Vodacom Bulls and Emirates Lions, round two was as forgettable as the opening round.<br><br> <br><br> The Capetonians had to work hard to fend off a spirited Blues side at DHL Newlands (27-16) before the KwaZulu-Natalians proved too strong for their visitors from Johannesburg on a soaking wet Growthpoint Kings Park (29-12).<br><br> <br><br> On Friday evening, the Vodacom Bulls lost their second successive match of the new season when they went down by 17-13 to the Hurricanes at Loftus Versfeld.<br><br> <br><br> The Toyota Cheetahs had a bye.<br><br> <br><br> Vodacom Super Rugby information:<br><br> 2015 MEDIA GUIDE APP | LATEST NEWS | RESULTS | FIXTURES | LOGS | TOP POINTS SCORERS | TOP TRY SCORERS<br><br> <br><br> Note: By clicking on the various headings, you will be able to access the breakdown for that specific match on www.sarugby.co.za, where team line-ups, replacements and run of play can be found.<br><br> <br><br> Vodacom Bulls 13 (10) Hurricanes 17 (9)<br><br> <br><br> The Vodacom Bulls lost their second successive home match when the Hurricanes caused a minor upset by winning 17-13 at Loftus Versfeld on Friday evening.<br><br> <br><br> The last time the three-time champions lost consecutive matches at home was in rounds two and three in 2008. Incidentally, that was also the last year the andlsquo;Canes won in Pretoria before this weekend.<br><br> <br><br> The home team could not get into gear and were heavily penalised by referee Andre Lees. These and other errors proved very costly in the end.<br><br> <br><br> Springbok flyhalf Handrandeacute; Pollard scored all the Vodacom Bullsandrsquo; points through a try, conversion and two penalty goals.<br><br> <br><br> Scorers:<br><br> <br><br> Vodacom Bulls andndash; Try: Handrandeacute; Pollard. Conversion: Pollard. Penalty goals: Pollard (2).<br><br> <br><br> Hurricanes andndash; Try: Julian Savea. Penalty goals: Beauden Barrett (4).<br><br> <br><br> DHL Stormers 27 (18) Blues 16 (6)<br><br> <br><br> It wasnandrsquo;t pretty, but the DHL Stormers wonandrsquo;t complain too much as they won their second match of the season against a 14-man Blues team by 27-16 at DHL Newlands in Cape Town on Saturday afternoon.<br><br> <br><br> The visitors from Auckland were reduced to 14 men when lock Hayden Triggs was red-carded for punching in the 25th minute. At the same time, All Black loose forward Steven Luatua left the field injured.<br><br> <br><br> Although the DHL Stormers started with intent, they made too many errors and could not assert themselves on the visitors, despite having one extra man on the field. They scored two tries, both in the first half, and had to be content with three penalty goals in the second half.<br><br> <br><br> The highlight of the match was probably the superb solo-try scored by Dillyn Leyds late in the first half. The two starting scrumhalves, Nic Groom and Jimmy Cowan, scored the only other tries of the match.<br><br> <br><br> Scorers:<br><br> <br><br> DHL Stormers andndash; Tries: Nic Groom, Dillyn Leyds.

Many of these cross-kicks and up-and-unders had the visitors under pressure and resulted in points for the Cell C Sharks.<br><br> <br><br> The Durbanites also had the better of the forward exchanges, giving their halfbacks a good platform to kick from, with Springbok flyhalf Patrick Lambie using the boot very well.<br><br> <br><br> Mistakes and ill-discipline by the Emirates Lions proved costly in the end as they left Durban with empty hands.<br><br> <br><br> Scorers:<br><br> <br><br> Cell C Sharks andndash; Tries: Cobus Reinach, Odwa Ndungane, Marcell Coetzee (2).

Manawatu flanker Callum Gibbins will get his first start for the andlsquo;Canes. <br><br> Stats:<br><br> <br><br> The Hurricanes last won in Pretoria in 2008, but on that occasion they also recorded their biggest ever victory over the Vodacom Bulls when they gave the team from Pretoria 50 (the final score was 50-22). <br><br> Itandrsquo;s also the highest score ever recorded between these two sides, although the Vodacom Bulls have won four encounters by scoring 40 points or more. <br><br> The last time the Hurricanes won two matches on tour in South Africa, was in 2006 when they finished on two from three. In 2005, they returned home to Wellington from the Republic having won both their matches andndash; in Johannesburg and Durban. <br><br> The andlsquo;Canes were also unbeaten on tour to South Africa in 1998 (Pretoria and Cape Town) and 2003 (Bloemfontein and Johannesburg). <br><br> The history between these two teams are dead-even, both having won eight times andndash; four at home and four away. The average score over the years is 26-all. <br><br> Quotes: <br><br> <br><br> Vodacom Bulls coach Frans Ludeke: "There is always pressure and the fact that we have five frontline props out with injury does not make it any easier. We have good depth though and we back our junior structures, so I am comfortable that we will be a very competitive outfit on Friday." <br><br> Spies: "Yes, we have a couple of younger guys in the team, but they are definitely good enough to play here. They bring lots of energy in the mix and we will need a healthy dose of that to compete on Friday against the Hurricanes, who will be full of confidence following their win last weekend. We know we were not good enough (last weekend). We did not play the important moments well and made silly errors that cost us dearly. Everyone is ready to make the step-up." <br><br> The teams are:<br><br> <br><br> Vodacom Bulls: Jesse Kriel, Bjorn Basson, JJ Engelbrecht, Jan Serfontein, Francois Hougaard, Handrandeacute; Pollard, Piet van Zyl, Pierre Spies (captain), Lappies Labuschagne, Deon Stegmann, Victor Matfield, Jacques du Plessis, Trevor Nyakane, Adriaan Strauss, Mornandeacute; Mellett.

Itandrsquo;s important that the players understand the need to back up last weekandrsquo;s performance against a very experienced Blues team. Weandrsquo;re expecting a massive onslaught from the Blues on Saturday, but itandrsquo;s great to be back at home and we look forward to being in front of our home fans at DHL Newlands." <br><br> The teams are:<br><br> <br><br> DHL Stormers: Cheslin Kolbe, Johnny Kotze, Juan de Jongh, Damian de Allende, Dillyn Leyds, Demetri Catrakilis, Nic Groom, Duane Vermeulen (captain), Michael Rhodes, Rynhardt Elstadt, Ruan Botha, Jurie van Vuuren, Vincent Koch, Scarra Ntubeni, Steven Kitshoff.

The Emirates Lions have scored an average of one try per match in these encounters. <br><br> Dating back 11 matches to their first encounter in 2006, the Cell C Sharks have scored four tries or more on six occasions, but the Emirates Lions have done it only once. <br><br> Interestingly enough, both these sides made 124 carries last weekend andndash; only the Brumbies (126) made more in Round 1. <br><br> Quotes: <br><br> <br><br> Cell C Sharks Director of Rugby, Gary Gold: "Due to injuries we have had to necessitate a few changes to the team. Apart from those injury enforced changes we have tried to keep the team as consistent as possible, so that players have another opportunity to get the wrongs of the past weekend right. We are looking forward to a physical battle against a very good Lions team." <br><br> Emirates Lions head coach Johan Ackermann: "We are looking forward to the trip down to the coast as we enjoy the local derbies and believe this to be a crucial encounter for both sides. Both teams have a lot to play for as we both went down in our first games of the season andndash; both at home andndash; last weekend.
