Canon George Oglivie, headmaster of Diocesan College in Cape Town, introduced the little game of rugby in 1861. Going forward in the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s the Springboks were increasingly the target of international controversy and protest. After being readmitted to international rugby in 1992 the Springboks struggled to return to their pre isolation stature. In their first game after resubmission the Springboks were defeated by New Zealand All Blacks 27 24 in August 1992. The unification of the national bodies in South Africa was signed at the Kimberly Sun Hotel. This event was the greatest highlight in 130 years of the game in South Africa. The new body was to be headquartered at Newlands. That same year the International Rugby Board awarded the honor of hosting the 1995 Rugby World Cup to South Africa, and the Springboks won the competition! They have since gone on to reclaim the title in 2007 once again proving themselves as one of the true powerhouses of international rugby.
