The McLook rugby collection

About Me

I am married and we have one girl, 26 yrs a big WP supporter, a boy 22 yrs, not supporting any spesific team, a boy 15 yars old, supporting the Lions and NZ.         I grew up in the great old karoo - North East Cape Province (Noupoort, Middelburg, Cradock) and I am a big rugby lover. I also played the game from age 14 till 31 and ended my career in George. I am a big supporter of the game and especially those teams playing the game as it should be, spreading and running the ball. I have a soft spot for the Brittish &  Irish Lions because the only come around every 10 or 15 years and like the way they play. Local rugby, Lions because of the new way they play the game, WP, Cheetahs and then the underdogs in the big games.

Hi Johan with regard to your question about the 1974 Lions. I can imagine that the 1974 Lions would have made a big impression on you being about 14 years old at the time.

I was about 12 years old in 1974 and was devastated by the way in which we lost.

Today I look at the tour differently seeing it more clearly for what it was namely an extraordinary achievement by an outstanding team.

Yes I have heaps of information about that 74 tour including pictures match summaries of all the matches and video material of the test matches. It is a bit of a process scanning the pictures and writing the pieces but I am sort of halfway with the picture scanning and will start to put some effort into to get it done.

If you go to the video section on this site you'll find some video material of the 1974 test matches.
