A Political Game
A Political Game 
The purpose of this guide is to make relevant links to the Social Studies and Health and Physical Education curricula and their respective Achievement Standards.

A Political Game is a TVNZ produced historical documentary that traces the passion and politics associated with the long-standing rugby rivalry between New Zealand and South Africa. Through revealing this often dramatic history, students will gain valuable insight into the connections between sport, politics, national identities and race. Students will also gain a clear understanding that politics is inextricably linked with high profile sport.

The documentary begins by revealing the raw emotion displayed by the 1996 All Blacks after their first ever test series win in South Africa, and suggests that to understand this emotion one needs to examine the complex social history of this sporting rivalry. The documentary illustrates how rugby within New Zealand and South Africa, in the early 1900s, played a pivotal role in the development of each countries' national identity and how each country believed that they were the rugby world champions. These competing beliefs underpinned the long-standing rugby rivalry between South Africa and New Zealand.
