spo09. 'Stop the Barbarians'
The South African Barbarians rugby team’s tour of Britain in 1979 was part of an attempt by South Africa to get back into world rugby. This leaflet explained that although the team included African and Coloured players, rugby within South Africa was still racially segregated. The team played eight games against minor British sides. The Sports Council, TUC, British Council of Churches, and Labour and Liberal Parties all called for the cancellation of the tour.
