Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Rugby union in Botswana, and its predecessor, Bechuanaland is a minor but growing sport, with a long history. Like Rugby union in Kenya and Zimbabwe, Botswanan rugby has suffered from having been played mainly by the white community, and being seen as a hangover from colonial days. Also, like most African nations, rugby is mainly played in and around the capital, Gaborone. However, Botswana''s proximity to the major rugby playing nation of South Africa, and two time world cup competitors Zimbabwe, has meant that Botswana has received a constant flow of touring sides, and other African nations. Rugby union in South Africa is a major sport - the country has both hosted and won the Rugby World Cup - and Botswana is saturated by South African media of various types. Because of this, Botswana can therefore be considered one of several countries within South African rugby''s sphere of influence - including Namibia, Lesotho, Zimbabwe, Swaziland, and Swaziland.
