Springbok Experience: Alie Bagus Plinth, 1989
April 18, 2013
In 1989 the South African Rugby Union (1966-1991), the successor the South African Coloured Rugby Football Board (1897-1966) celebrated the centenary of the Transvaal Independent Rugby Football Union (TIRFU), one of its founding members.

As part of the celebrations, the SARU national team, coached by Millen Petersen, played against a Transvaal XV at the Longdale Stadium, Bosmont, and Johannesburg.

Notable personalities who played in that historic game include former Springbok Assistant Coach and current DHL Stormers and WP coach, Allister Coetzee, as well as Francois Davids, current president of the Boland Rugby Union.

Irven October, former national coach of Namibia and currently the Asset Care Manager at SARU, was supposed to play in this game, but had to withdraw as a result of a hamstring injury.

The SARU XV won the game by 23 points to 22 after a hard fought battle and a late try by Richard Britton of Western Province.
