Sa Rugby Year Book - Jaarboek - All Blacks Tour - Toer 1976 - National Souvenir Programme / Nasionale Soewenier-Program
The Playfair Sports Company of South Africa (Pty) Ltd. 1976. Softcover. 42 pages (complete). In English and Afrikaans. Souvenir programme for what was one of the most momentous rugby tours to South Africa - for all the wrong reasons. Danie Craven wrote in his foreword: "I hope that the game of Rugby will be the ultimate winner on this tour and that our visitors and their large camp-following will return home with many happy and lasting memories of our country." The New Zealanders certainly returned with lasting memories. Andy Leslie wrote: "This tour was an eye opener for the New Zealand rugby people (players and administrators). As the teams prepared for the first test, in Durban, it was announced that Egypt had become the 29th country to boycott the Olympic Games in Montreal ?a direct protest against the All Black tour.A month earlier, the Soweto Township erupted in violent protests against Afrikaans as a medium of instruction resulting in the shooting of hundreds of schoolchildren as police panicked in dealing with the protestors. It is incredible for most Kiwi?s to contemplate today that the tour to South Africa closely followed a day (16 June ? the All Blacks played the first tour match against border on 30th of June 1976) when 176 mostly schoolchildren died as a result of police gunfire in Soweto. By the end of the tour some 3000 black and coloured people had been killed or injured in the escalating violence." A tidy copy. The covers are secure and sure with some mild wear and scuffing. Within, there are occasional annotations. Otherwise, the contents are tidy, clean, clear, patient and competent. fk. Fair/No Jacket.
