The book launch for Rugby In Our Blood was held at Zoo Lake Bowling Club.

Hugh Bladen, Simnikiwe Xabanisa and Angus Powers from Sports Illustrated provided real rugby insights, while Bevan Cullinan and I stuck to stories about our high school rugby careers and watching fights in Roodepoort.

Here’s the book blurb:

In Rugby In Our Blood South Africa’s biggest sports stars and celebrities, as well as everyday fans, share their most extraordinary rugby stories. Epic wins and humbling defeats. Heroes and hilarity. And the passion, pain and glory. Everything that makes rugby South Africa’s greatest game.

It’s currently at number 5 on the local best-seller list – because South Africans like rugby a lot.

Available at all bookstores, as well as from Kalahari.
