Rugby unites races in S Africa

White rugby fans head to mainly black township of Soweto for "historic" match.

    In a country where sport continues to be largely segregated by race, the arrival of thousands of white rugby fans into the South African township of Soweto could be hugely symbolic.

    For many rugby fans, the trip marked their first time in Soweto - a township inhabited by mainly black South Africans.

    And though the match may not have eroded racial tensions that still exist in the country, it gave some residents of Soweto the chance to see top class rugby on their doorstep.
