The Irish Rugby Supporters Club is delighted to announce that tickets for the GUINNESS Series 2013 will go on sale on ticketmaster.ie at 10am on Thursday, May 30.
The Weekend Argus said van der Westhuizen and former Springbok coach Straeuli would charge business executives 4,950 rand (760 dollars) for a table of ten to watch the tape which among others shows naked Springboks being forced to pump up rugby balls under water in an icy lake.
If fully subscribed the event will earn the two men about 200,000 rand, the newspaper said.
"We want to take this whole thing a step back and show exactly what happened," van der Westhuisen said. "The players were humiliated because they were shown naked on television and in newspapers. We want to tell an exclusive crowd the truth."
The camp which has become known as "Staaldraad" (Steel Wire) was condemned by the South African Sport Minister Ngconde Balfor as being "barbaric" and comparable to apartheid after it was was leaked to the media late last year.
The tape also showed how the Springboks were deprived of sleep and forced naked into a dark pit for several hours.
Van der Westhuizen retired from the game after the Springboks were beaten 29-9 by New Zealand in the quarterfinals of the World Cup. Straeuli was forced to resign on December 4 after the Springboks' unsuccessful World Cup campaign and after details of Staaldraad emerged.
He was replaced by the former South African under-21 coach Jake White on Friday.
