The 2010 SA Rugby Annual is the official and definitive record of arguably the most successful season in the history of South African rugby.
Now in its 39th year and publishing on 10 December 2009, the SA Rugby Annual is regarded as one of the best yearbooks in the global game. Not only does it record the 250 first-class matches involving South African teams in 2009, but it also contains biographies of the 700 players who took to the field in those matches.
For the first time ever, the Annual also contains the names of every one of the hundreds of South African rugby players who took to the field in an official SA Rugby tournament – from the Tri-Nations to the Under-13 Craven Week; from the Varsity Cup to the National Club Championships; and everything in between. An updated historical section will also settle any argument, or answer any question about South African rugby, as it records every one of the 804 players to have pulled on the Springbok jersey since 1891 – from Benjamin Duff to Zane Kirchner.
The 2010 SA Rugby Annual paints an unbeatable picture of an unforgettable and unprecedented year in South African rugby, when the Springboks beat the British & Irish Lions and are world champions, Vodacom Tri-Nations champions and the number-one ranked team in the world; the Springbok Sevens team are the IRB world series champions; and the Vodacom Bulls are the reigning Vodacom Super 14 champions.
The 2010 SA Rugby Annual is the ‘bible’ of the game in South Africa, and essential reading for every coach, administrator, sponsor and fan – as well as an invaluable keepsake for every one of the players whose names appear in the book, thereby forever making them a part of a once-in-a-lifetime season they can tell their grandchildren about.
