Everyone remembers the Springboks big matches, the tries and the glory. But few people know what was said in team meetings, which music was played on the team bus and what went down in the dressing rooms afterwards.
In Springbok Glory, sports writer Stephen Nell not only tells the story of South African rugby's best moments on the field, but also lifts the lid on events behind the scenes. He goes and delves for the stories from players, coaches and officials that were at the coalface, giving the reader an in-depth view of Springbok rugby. Among those interviewed are Bryan Habana, Nick Mallett, Jake White, John Smit, Brendan Venter, Chester Williams, Gary Gold and the late Louis Luyt.
Nell's fascinating stories about South African rugby's golden moments since the return from isolation in 1992 will elicit many a nostalgic smile.
