The sport of rugby is under intense pressure to reflect the changes in South African society. ‘Voortrekker Ruck’ shows that rugby is not just a game, it reflects how Afrikaners see themselves.  Aggression, control and discipline, the hallmarks of their former rugby success are seen as the necessary qualities for the building of a competitive new South Africa.
