CAPE TOWN - President of the South African Rugby Union (Saru), Oregan Hoskins, has called on the country's provinces to provide greater support in transformation to Heyneke Meyer's successor as Springbok coach.

Meyer announced yesterday that he won't be making himself available for another stint as Springbok coach, when his contract expires at the end of this month.

Hoskins says it's time that everyone in the rugby fraternity plays ball.

"You know the glass ceiling has become almost concrete and we need to break it. The way that we can break it in South African rugby is through the provinces and especially the franchised provinces. They need to play their part, they need to come to the party and assist us."
