The Bowral Blacks have expressed disappointment with a number of emails they've received asking them to change their name.

The emails were received following weeks of protests about racism and Police brutality.

The Jersey and name have been used since 1972 and Club President Mark Freund says he'll be doing everything he can to keep things the way they are.

He insists there's no racial intent in the name and would only consider making a change if the New Zealand All Blacks did the same.
