Film

Invictus

invictus

Directed by Clint Eastwood, Invictus is based on a true story and set in the years following the abolition of apartheid – days in which Nelson Mandela was trying to unite a country divided by years of racial segregation.

With the 1995 Rugby World Cup being hosted in South Africa, Mandela charges Springbok captain Francois Piennar with winning the tournament.

What happens over the course of the ensuing games unites the country like never before.

Morgan Freeman and Matt Damon received Oscar nominations for their portrayals of Nelson Mandela and Francois Piennar respectively, so it’s the perfect film to remind you of the unifying power of sport and will get you in the perfect mood for the next few weeks.

Stream now from Amazon.

eBook

Winning by Clive Woodward

Winning by Clive Woodward tells the story of how the English Rugby team went from languishing amongst the lower levels of international rugby-playing nations in 1997, to world champions in a matter of six years.

Taking you through many of the innovative techniques and processes it took to build a winning team, many of which can be utilised in everyday life, Winning is a fun and gripping read that you can learn a lot from, too.

Available as a Kindle download.
