British Lions 1980 - Rob Louw Add Video

I remember getting up at in the middle of the night to watch the 1980 Lions versus Springboks series live (they showed it live in NZ). The government owned TV New Zealand thought we should get more rugby coverage from South Africa. Look out for a young Clive Woodward attempting a tackle on Louw in Bloemfontein? Great footage of Morne du Plessis, Divan Serfontein, and Louis Moolman in action.

McLook, we need a video category for the 1980 Lions Tour.

New Zealand watched this series with interest. The All Blacks were in shocking form at the time in 1980, and many of us were very worried about if the All Blacks could turn this around in 1981. The Boks were an awesome team in 1980.

Just created one. Thanks for the video. I've got a couple about the 1980 sreies as well which I will add. Was a great series and Rob Louw was outstanding.
