  • South Africa beat England 32-12 to capture their third Rugby World Cup title and produced a first along the way, with winger Makazole Mapimpi scoring a drought-breaking try.

  • Springboks won the titles in 1995 against New Zealand and in 2007 against England in try-less finals.

  • Handre Pollard, who had scored all of South Africa’s points with six penalties, converted both tries.

Yokohama: South Africa stunned pre-match favourites England 32-12 with a brutally effective forward display to win their third World Cup in Yokohama on Saturday.

The Springboks’ victory was built on a colossal performance by their powerhouse pack that allowed fly-half Handre Pollard to kick six penalties before Makazole Mapimpi’s 66th-minute try — the first the Springboks had scored in a World Cup final.

Victory ensured the Springboks made it three wins from three World Cup final appearances — after missing the first two editions because of apartheid — and maintained their record of being crowned champions at 12-year intervals following their 1995 and 2007 triumphs.

Saturday’s win also saw South Africa become the first team to win a World Cup having lost in pool play, with the Springboks beaten by reigning champions New Zealand in their Japan 2019 opener.

It was a tactical triumph for South Africa coach Rassie Erasmus, who has overseen a Springbok revival after taking charge two years ago following a miserable 2016.
