Rumour has it that the Springboks' plan to play a warm up match for the Lions tour against the New Zealand Maori is under threat ... on racial grounds.

According to reports, South African law now prevents the country's rugby team from playing against any side selected on racial lines - somewhat ironic given that, during the apartheid era, Maori players were not allowed to tour South Africa with the All Blacks.

Not like rain on your wedding day perhaps, but ironic nevertheless.
