Thursday 14 November 2019 from 18h00: Wynberg Boys’ High and the Wynberg Old Boys’ Union take great pleasure in welcoming Penguin Random House to the Bill Bowden Pavilion for the launch of rugby writer Gavin Rich's latest book “Our Blood is Green: The Springboks in Their Own Words”.
Gavin, just returned from the Rugby World Cup in Japan, is no stranger to the venue as a regular Master of Ceremonies of our Old Boys’ ‘Open Mic’ evenings where his exceptional knowledge of the game, the players, and his insights into South African Rugby are always fascinating to experience first hand.
Coming on the back of the Springboks’ definitive victory over England to lift the Webb Ellis trophy, this is an evening not to be missed.
