As the South African nation rides high on the wave of the Springboks’ euphoric 2019 Rugby World Cup victory, our boytjies are packing their bags to return home and embark on their Champions Tour of glory.
On Saturday, the Springboks shone on the world stage when they beat England with a final score of 32-12 at the International Stadium Yokohama, in Japan, to hold aloft the Web Ellis Cup as rugby world champions.
And South Africans could not be more proud! Bok supporters throughout the country – and the world – have taken social media by storm in celebration of our team’s dynamic display of power over the Red Roses.
Coach Rassie Erasmus’s Rugby World Cup-winning Springbok squad will arrive back in South Africa on Wednesday before kicking off their Champions Tour in Gauteng on Thursday.

Our national psyche & emotional well-being was shot. This is not just a Rugby World Cup win.
It’s a reflection of WHO ARE WE when we work TOGETHER!
