1981 was the year that South Africa’s national rugby team – the Springboks – accepted an invitation from the NZ Rugby Football Union to tour New Zealand to play rugby against a number of provincial sides as well as a four test series against our national team – the All Blacks. The Springbok Tour took place in the midst of a country ideologically divided over the tour and became a flashpoint for civil disruption on a scale never before witnessed in New Zealand. This book is a personal account of how Dunedin responded in its opposition to the 1981 Springbok tour.

It can also be purchased in e-book form from and other sites.
