Rainbow Warrior Summary

In this updated edition of his bestselling autobiography, the ex-captain of South Africa and current coach of Saracens, looks back on an eventful career in rugby union and offers his compelling views on the future of the game post-World Cup 1999. His is a fascinating story of a tough Afrikaans upbringing -- how his unique brand of fighting spirit and unquenchable ambition saw him gain, against all odds, the captaincy of his country in Test rugby. In his book he describes in detail the professional era -- that defining period in the history of the game -- and how he was ostracised by the South African board as he negotiated contracts for his players. How did Pienaar influence political and cultural change in South Africa? What are his views on the change from amateurism to professionalism in the sport, both in this country and overseas? Where does he see rugby heading in the new millennium? These and other powerful themes are addressed by Francois Pienaar in his hard-hitting and thought-provoking book, specially updated with Pienaar's first-hand account of the 1999 World Cup and its repercussions on the sport.
