The triumphs; the heartbreak; the controversies; the heroes and the villains - South Africa's sporting history is one of drama and greatness. Often it has been a drama acted out on a huge international stage. But wherever South Africans have played, there has always been one spectator for whom it was more important than a game: the sports writer.

Shortlisted for the William Hill Sports Book of the Year Award 2014 Spectator sport is living, breathing, non-stop theatre for all. Focusing on spectator sports and their accompanying issues, tracing their origins, evolution and impact, inside the lines and beyond the boundary, this book offers a thematic history of professional sport and the ingredients that magnetise millions around the globe. It tells the stories that matter: from the gladiators of Rome to the runners of Rift Valley via the innovator-missionaries of Rugby School; from multi-faceted British exports to the Americanisation of professionalism and the Indianisation of cricket. Rob Steen traces the development of these sports which captivate the turnstile millions and the mouse-clicking masses, addressing their key themes and commonalities, from creation myths to match fixing via race, politics, sexuality and internationalism. Insightful and revelatory, this is an entertaining exploration of spectator sports' intrinsic place in culture and how sport imitates life – and life imitates sport.

A collection of humorous, touching and uplifting stories about life, rugby and everything else by one of South Africa’s true rugby legends ... Theuns Stofberg’s illustrious rugby career spanned from 1976 to 1985, and he is commonly considered one of the all-time Springbok greats. As the 36th captain of the Springboks, one of only 56 players to be given this honour, he was tough and uncompromising on the field but a true gentleman and great raconteur off it, which he proves with the anecdotes collected in this book. In Stories from the Touchline, he takes the reader behind the scenes, from his childhood days as a schoolboy rugby player to the 1981 flour-bomb tour of New Zealand and winning the Currie Cup for three different provinces – a feat unmatched to this day. He also writes about what it was like playing with legends such as Morné du Plessis, Gerrie Germishuys, Schalk Burger Sr and Gysie Pienaar, marvels at the fans’ odd and often colourful behaviour, and affords readers a fascinating glimpse into the amateur days of rugby in South Africa. He also shares his personal struggles with a speech impediment and ill health, and coping with family tragedy, in his own inimitable way. By turns deeply personal, amusing and nostalgic, this book will be treasured by each and every South African rugby fan.

To learn who killed a loathsome gossip columnist, Bognor joins the paper Staggering homeward from a banquet, St. John Derby decides it would be easier to stagger back to work instead. When he reaches his desk, the booze-addled gossip columnist treats himself to a massive tumbler of port and calls for a taxi. By the time the cab arrives, the port is spilled on the carpet, mingling with the blood leaking from Derby’s cut throat. No one will mourn his death. Special investigator Simon Bognor is dispatched to get the scoop on who finished off the sodden old scribe. Journalism is not Bognor’s field—in fact, he can barely type—and the tame missives that pepper the paper’s gossip section strike him as too boring to kill for. But as he pokes around the daily newspaper’s offices, he finds quite the story indeed—one that will either land him on the front page, or among the obituaries.

How did a lad born 50 yards from Wigan Pier come to travel the world covering the biggest stories in sport for a quarter of a century? From Sydney to Rome to Tirana to Tokyo, Living on the Deadline reveals what it's really like to be an international writer on the road. As a columnist with the Daily Express and chief sports writer with the Press Association, Frank Malley has amassed a wealth of poignant and humorous anecdotes while reporting on World Cups, Ryder Cups, tennis Grand Slams and Ashes Test matches. Along the way he has sailed with Ben Ainslie, kicked with Jonny Wilkinson and faced Greg Rusedski's 149mph serve. His memoir, full of wry observations, contains unique glimpses into the grandeur of George Best's funeral inside Stormont Castle, the up-close brutality of Mike Tyson, the heady emotion of the London Olympics and Wigan Athletic's historic FA Cup victory.
