Springbok Tour,1981

“Springbok Tour”

Apertheid is like spliting up the people, there is like different place for them to learn and enjoy.
So what they think is why don’t they split up the rugby team, other people agreed and others
don’t.In the 1980’s, the Rugby  Union proposed a Springbok Tour for 1981. It became a topic
due to issues of the sports boycott by the other African nations. The protest polarised the
population in New Zealand , the security strengthen  after telecommunication services
disrupted. There are about 50 protestors who just invaded the pitch after pulling down the
fence which caused the game to be cancelled.  So the All Blacks didn’t tour South Africa ,
but there are no protests as political circumstances had changed.
