The Springbok rugby captain, over more than a century, has represented many things to many South Africans. He has united, and he has divided. He has thrilled, he has disappointed. He has inspired, he has disheartened. He has triumphed, he has failed. But he has always had an impact.

In this revealing narrative, Edward Griffiths and Stephen Nell depict the men who have been able to call themselves ‘Springbok Captain’ through their backgrounds, triumphs and disappointments. Relive the heyday of rugby legends Bennie Osler, Danie Craven, Hennie Muller, Johan Claassen, Naas Botha, Francois Pienaar, Gary Teichmann, Joost van der Westhuizen, Andre Vos and others.

Now fully updated with the accounts of Bobby Skinstad, Victor Matfield and Jean de Villiers, The Springbok Captains is the epic story that lies at the heart of South African rugby.

Must read!

Fri, 12 Feb 2016 | Review by: Ray G

This is a fascinating account of what made these men and shaped their views, thoughts, opinions of coaches and emotions at important moments in South African rugby history. Interesting anecdotes and stories of what happened behind the scenes keep it light, entertaining and yet informative. This is a great read for fans who lived through these times as well as anyone who just has a passing interest in rugby.
