MANDELA 100 PORTSMOUTH PROGRAMME HIGHLIGHTS

Highlights of our Rugby For Unity event
Local rugby clubs and enthusiasts turned out in numbers to celebrate Mandela's vision. Sport-minded locals had the opportunity to reflect on Mandela’s use of rugby football as a tool for bringing together his ‘rainbow nation’ for the glory of their country South Africa, regardless of their differences.
