A new Kamp Staaldraad DVD, to be released on Monday, promises to give the “naked truth” about the pre-World Cup boot camp.
The DVD has been produced by Adriaan Heyns, former leader of the police’s special task force and the brains behind the camp.
Heyns says he decided to make the DVD available to the public after reading about the camp in Corne Krige’s autobiography.
“Corne’s description was not accurate and I want to set the record straight,” he told Rapport newspaper. “He used the camp to promote his book.”
Heyns said he planned to present a proposal to SA Rugby (through his company Pro-Tech International) that would see millions of rands allocated to arranging similar camps for SA U19 and U21 sides, as well as the country’s Super 14 franchises.
The Kamp Staaldraad DVD was filmed by video operator Dale McDermott, who committed suicide when photos of the camp were released to newspapers. Certain Bok players, including Joost van der Westhuizen, blamed McDermott for the leak.
