Battling the Boks - Terry McLean
The 1979 All Black Tour of South Africa
This was the All Black tour of all time. Conceived amidst controversy, it divided a nation before it began - and then, from the first match, received the avid interest of supporters and detractors alike.
Battling the Boks is a book that every New Zealand Rugby enthusiast will have to read. It is honest to the point of shocking many people.
It is uncompromising about the team in its performance; it is revealing about South African whites in impending conflict with browns and blacks, and it is critical about the impending conflict in South African-New Zealand Rugby.
