As a die hard rugby loving South African I feel this book was written by an opportunist seeking to make a profit.
His interviews with the legends of the game at the time are interesting but that's not the concerns I have with this book.
As a South African I take acception when someone writes a book on Rugby in 1998, making lot of references to South African life and rugby but just happened to leave the country 14 years prior.
When you have a deeper understanding of that period of SA's history its easier to cut through the mist and see if for what it is. Donald McRae has no right to touch this subject. That honour should go to someone with more integrity.
