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 de Ruit and 702 talk show host John Robbie share their favourite rugby stories.
Leon Schuster claims that playing pranks on his Shimla teammates kick-started his career in comedy, while former Springbok Kobus Wiese reveals a hilarious anecdote about a fellow tight forward on tour in Paris. 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!
