Speaking to SuperSport, Sikhosana said he believes it comes down to the coaches.

"The seriousness of themselves leading a team and leading these young boys. If you stand there and allow what these boys are doing... earlier on today I came to watch Isithembiso playing against another team... I think they were leading by an aggregate of 6-1."

Sikhosana described a player getting the ball then emulating sleep, followed by all his teammates, which the Buccaneers legend felt disrespected the game itself.

"We can have jokes, but what was happening in the morning is something I cannot tolerate. I think it comes down to the coaches leading those teams and that's what does not sit well with me."

Sikhosana said what was important was unearthing the next Helman Mkhalele, Pollen Ndlanya or Jerry Sikhosana.

"So let's respect the game, and make sure that anybody who is seated out there with the opportunity to be broadcast live, is being watched and looked at. If they see what they see here, then they'll tell you 'we don't want to waste our time'."
