The Last Outpost

Echoes from The Last Outpost

Echoes from The Last Outpost In these pages you will read about horse psychology, the KwaZulu/Natal braaivleis, how to talk to your compost heap and about a rugger match between the Michaelhouse sixth team and Maritzburg college eighth team. It had, for some reason, never been reported before in the annals of South African rugby until it was published in the Witness, in which many of these stories were previously published.

Press comments on its predecessor, Despatches from the Last Outpost:

"He's a funny chap this Chris Ellis. Very funny"
Natal Mercury

"Writing humorous material is by no means easy, but this writer has the recipe to the last ingredient"
The Argus
