    A rugby team playing another rugby team from South Africa was no reason to ban New Zealand from the Olympics.

    Many countries from Africa boycotted the Games because the IOC refused to ban New Zealand.

    This punished the athletes from Africa and had no effect on the government policies of South Africa.

    The teams did not have anything to do with the Olympics or the countries' sports organizations.
