Winging It: On tour with the Boks is an insider’s view of life on tour from one of South Africa’s most enduring sports writers, Liam Del Carme, while he follows the much-cherished national rugby team, the Springboks. Del Carme takes the reader across continents and time zones as he shares the helter-skelter atmosphere of meeting looming writing deadlines while finding ways to maintain his sanity. The book explores the ebb and flow of touring with one of rugby’s iconic teams since 1996, including three RWCs, various Tri Nations and Rugby Championships, as well as end-of-year tours, in destinations all over the world. He explores the characters, destinations, and his travel companions while sharing his highs and lows of covering great rugby moments. In the book, the reader gets to see the personal side of prominent sports personalities.
