Text and photos on the police unit especially set up for riot control during the springboks tour of the early 1980's The Springbok Tour of 81, as the cliche goes, divided a nation. Participants in the events were not just confined to the rugby field. Ross Meurant had a unique vantage point, being on the front lines of the police. This review looks at the experiences that he detailed, his views on the tour movement as part of the wider political culture in the country at the time and at sporting boycotts generally.

Opinion on sporting relations with apartheid era South Africa often broke down on rural/urban lines, with similar correlations for the right/left spectrum. Many sought to prevent rugby becoming politicised, however it was inevitable that couldn’t happen in the case of the tour. Sport and politics are always intermingled, just as any relations between countries cannot be separated from politics.
