In a phenomenal game against England, the Springboks came out triumphant as the winners of the 2019 Rugby World Cup in Japan today.
The South African team snatched the title and Web Ellis Cup from England with a 32-12 final score, also making this the first time ever the Boks have scored tries in a final.
This victory is the third World Cup win for South Africa and comes 12 years after the last win in 2007. South Africa seems to have a 12 year winning cycle, as the first world cup win happened in 1995, 12 years before 2007.
From the absolute smashing quarterfinals 49-3 win over Italy to the grudge match against Japan, the Springboks showed that they were there to win.
In addition to taking the final win, South Africa scored the most tries in the tournament. With a tight defense strategy and great tries scored across the games from the likes of Makazola Mapimpi and Faf de Klerk.
South Africa will enthusiastically welcome our boys home after their fantastic performance and incredible win.
