In Blue Bulls Welcome to Soweto, Tommy Motswai exuberantly celebrates the first ever game played by the Blue Bulls rugby team in Soweto. The Bulls played the New Zealand Crusader team and beat them to take the Vodacom Super 14 trophy. In the past rugby was seen as a sport reserved for whites. The Blue Bulls game in Soweto probably did as much to popularize and deracialise rugby as did Mandela when he donned the Springbok jersey and strode onto the field to congratulate the Springboks when they won the World Cup in 1995. As Motswai wrote, ”Heroes Blue bulls for SKY life." A positive image for a positive future.Below is the full text that Tommy Motswai wrote regarding the print. Motswai is deaf, hence the unusual syntax of the writing.
