Surely in 2018 making such distinctions between ethnicities helps no one?
If I recall correctly, it's viewed as the average make up of the side over time, not each game, and it should be six players of colour, of which at least two are African. FYI Philander is Coloured I think.
Reading the above post may cause bouts of nausea.
