Kate Rowan: Springboks are literally in a class of their own
THE South African rugby team’s training base this week during the Dublin leg of their Northern hemisphere tour has been at Blackrock College Rugby Football Club’s Stradbrook grounds.
Although you don’t have to be a Blackrock College past pupil to be a member of the club, it is closely affiliated with the school.
Unlike many a previous Irish Test match, Blackrock College will not be providing any alumni to the side to face the Springboks on Saturday. The most conspicuous absentee being the injured Brian O’Driscoll.
