A most incredible, inspiring, moving, eighty minutes.
Chris Wadman: Economist – Treasury
Michael Charton’s unique ability to bring to life the wonderful characters of the 1937 Springbok Rugby Tour to Australia and New Zealand, is the cornerstone of his presentation. Hollywood has seldom, if ever, had me more riveted for ninety minutes.
His knowledge of the topic is extraordinary, rivalled perhaps only by his pitch-perfect turn of phrase, and sense of empathy with those sporting legends now long departed. By the end of the evening I felt as if Danie Craven, Boy Louw and a merciless tackler (but otherwise gentleman) known as “Jimmy the Killer” were at least distant relatives of mine.
For enthusiasts of South African history, or rugby, or both, Michael’s presentation is a absolute treat. I really can’t wait to round up twenty mates to take to the next one.
Justin Nurse: Founder – Laugh it Off
Michael is an authority and an inspiration. His commanding presence will have you enthralled. He speaks about the 1937 Springboks with a pace and passion that makes you feel like you were one of the green and gold.
Never have I felt so proudly patriotic as I did listening to Michael; joyfully reliving one of the greatest ever rugby contests played out before I was even alive.

Outstanding! Reminds me of David Rattray and his takes on the Zulu wars.
