Rugby at Newlands PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Rugby at Newlands free pdf Rugby At Newlands tells the legendary story of every Springbok Test Match at Newlands Rugby Stadium, the oldest continually used rugby stadium in the world. This comprehensive review is to be published the year after Newlands became the first South African stadium to host fifty Test matches - which, coincidentally, may be the total number it ever hosts. The epic journey of Springbok Test rugby at Newlands begins in 1891 and is covered here until the 50th Test in 2014. In addition to describing the great moments and titanic clashes of each game, the authors place the matches in the context of their time. Chapters are enhanced by unique illustrations, from rare match programmes to iconic photographs- and by contributions from various rugby greats who have trod the hallowed turf of Newlands, including Springboks Naas Botha and Divan Serfontein and British Lion Willie John McBride. With the future of Newlands Rugby Stadium in the balance, the time is apt for this celebration of one of the world's great sporting stadiums.
