Imagine a Springbok player as a finished product coming off a factory assembly line. What are the different components required to have him functioning perfectly? And what does it take to cohere into a successful team?

Author Liz McGregor spent two years behind the scenes interviewing the South African team's players, coaches, wives and girlfriends, mothers and teachers. She also spoke to the Bok doctor and physio, the sponsors, brand managers and the logistics guy. What she discovered is as fascinating as it is complex.
