South Africa beat England to lift Rugby World Cup

South Africa beat England to lift Rugby World Cup”

Du Toit was a colossus for the Springboks during the World Cup and dominated the breakdown during the final win over England, helping South Africa secure seven turnovers and proving a menace for the English throughout the match. It's the first time South Africa has won with a black captain - that's a big moment for us'. We weren't good enough against South Africa, we weren't good enough.

The Springboks then scored their first try in three World Cup finals when Mapimpi broke clear in the 66th minute, chipped ahead and collected the ball back from Lukhanyo Am, and recalled winger Kolbe then blasted through to put the gloss on a deserved win.

Research found the United Kingdom to be the nation most engaged with the Rugby World Cup, with a staggering 6,547,600 people reading about the event online. "It's evolved. We had an incredible moment with Mr Mandela".

South Africa captain Siya Kolisi is hopeful he has inspired children back home after leading his country to Rugby World Cup victory over England in Japan today.

Kolisi has spoken often about how the Springboks' success has been driven by uniting a group of players from different backgrounds, a sentiment that Pienaar shares. And hey, in this tournament we beat New Zealand, so all's not lost.

"I am hoping we have given people a little bit of hope", he said.

South Africa, playing with far more ambition than in their semi-final win over Wales, kept up the pressure in the second half as England struggled to build momentum and Pollard nudged them 18-12 ahead after an hour. Hold your heads high boys, you did an outstanding job and we couldn't have asked more from you.

"But then sport comes in and boom - it just brings people together and gels them. the message that (young kids) would have seen about unity, about working together, and that attractive speech of both the coach and the captain is strong".

"You can never forget where you've come from and the people that have been with you through life". They believe their team has deserved the trophy. "He came with a very, very strong pattern of play in the knockout stages".

It is a moment that will go down as one of the greatest in South African rugby history, and the ideal way for Louw to bring the curtain down on his Bok career.

It was a tactical triumph for South Africa coach Rassie Erasmus, who has overseen a Springbok revival after taking cost two years in the past following a depressing 2016.

"Madiba is smiling", says Pienaar.
