“Medicine testing needs to be functioning, that’s a world sport issue.”
Proudfoot also said South Africa’s rugby ought to be judged by events around the area.
He added:”If you take a look at our Sevens team competing on the world stage, our side third in the Earth, that the Springboks competing well, the women’s team also.
