Description:

In The Springbok Handbook, Eddie Grieb and Stuart Farmer chronicle the history of South African test match rugby since that first match in 1891 until the Grand Slam tour of the United Kingdom and Ireland in November 2010 - some 395 matches in all. Their meticulous research has revealed even more interesting records and facts than have been unearthed before, and they also recount popular tales and folklore involving South Africa rugby over the intervening 120 years.

The more colourful characters amongst those who have been lucky enough to wear the famous Springbok jersey in combat, and a few who were unlucky not to, are brought to life with stories and anecdotes told and retold over the years. All that, along with tables, notes and miscellany, makes the book a veritable treasure trove of everything you have possibly wanted to know about South African rugby, its players, its rich heritage, triumphs and tribulations.
