TitleSpringboks Tour of USA 1981 Brochure
DescriptionVery rare booklet covering the little-known 1981 Springbok Tour of the USA. After leaving NZ in 1981 after a difficult tour the Springboks flew to New York and were hosted by the Eastern Rugby Union. 3 matches were played including a test against the National team, the latter played in front of a handful of spectators at a private Polo ground in New York State. This Test is statistically significant as the only time a player has scored 3 tries in 2 consecutives Tests, Ray Mordt achieving this by scoring 3 against NZ in the 3rd Test at Eden Park in the last game of the NZ Leg. In addition it is recorded as the lowest attendance of any Test match, less than 100 people. All records of this tour are very difficult to find, this is the 32 pages officail pre tour A4 size booklet including the team lists for the games against the Eastern Rugby Union and the USA National Side plus the Springbok Squad.
