    A bit of football I see here, 'spats' of rugby about the man that 'transcended' the sport of his South African routes, emigrated to England, played for his new country yet wasn't allowed back 'home'..and effectively built the road that led to the international communities disdain at the segregated practises of Apartheid...and, I might add, played a not wholly inadvertent role in the fall of Apartheid itself. You tell me...he died yesterday, RIP Basil D'Oliveira
