Stransky Who?

 Steve Lipman’s article, “A Boot Against Apartheid” (Dec. 11), is ludicrous. The focus is on Joel Stransky, of the South African rugby team of 1995, recapturing some of his fame from his portrayal in “Invictus.” 
Nowhere in the film is there a reference to Stransky or that the person who made the winning kick was Stransky, or that Stransky was the only Jew on the team, or that there was a Jewish player on the team.
Shame.
