9780624048763: Rugby in our Blood

Rugby - is it love or addiction? There’s little doubt that South Africans are mad for rugby. In this book some of the country’s most famous rugby fans, and a Springbok or two, put into plain words what the game means to them.

The likes of DA leader Tony Leon, Spud author John van der Ruit and 702 talk show host John Robbie share their favorite rugby stories. Leon Schuster claims that playing pranks on his Shimla team mates kick started his career in comedy, while former Springbok Kobus Wiese reveals all in “What goes on tour doesn’t stay on tour”.

Some tell of life lessons learnt on and off the field, while others recall memorable moments in Springbok rugby, or the glory days of student rugby - when they could still run! More stories: “What I’ve learned” by former Springbok coach Jake White; “Journey of a Springbok Captain” by John Smit; “Rugby Diplomacy” by commentator Hugh Bladen; “The Greatest Game” by cricketer Jacques Kallis; “My lost love” by athlete Oscar Pistorius; and “Vrystaat!” by swimmer Ryk Neethling.
