More about the book!
Join Jonathan Ball Publishers and The Reading List for the launch of Lloyd Burnard’s new book Miracle Men: How Rassie’s Springboks Won the World Cup.
Sports journalists Lloyd Burnard, Stephen Nell and Vata Ngobeni will tackle tough questions from fellow journalist Tinus van Staden at the launch.
When Rassie Erasmus took over as coach of the Springboks in 2018, few thought they had a chance of winning the Rugby World Cup. The Boks had slipped to seventh in the world rankings and lost the faith of the rugby-loving public. Less than two years later, jubilant crowds lined the streets of South Africa’s cities to welcome back the victorious team.
Burnard takes the reader on the thrilling journey of a team that went from no-hopers to world champions, and examines how exactly this turnaround was achieved.
Miracle Men is filled with marvellous anecdotes and sharp insights. It is also inspiring testimony to what can be achieved when a group of South Africans from all backgrounds come together as a team.
