Cape Town – The SA Rugby is planning smaller trophy visits to other South African provinces, but no timelines were given as yet.

The streets of Cape Town were abuzz on Monday with Springboks fans cheering for the rugby heroes on their final leg of the Rugby World Cup victory tour, which made its way through the City townships Langa, Belhar and Elsies River, where the champions displayed the Web Ellis Cup in all its glory.

Thousands of fans came out in their numbers to see the champions carrying the Web Ellis Cup through the city.

For many, the victory symbolised the hope for greater unity in the country. Springbok captain Siya Kolisi thanked South Africans from all walks of life for coming out in their hundreds of thousands to congratulate the Boks on winning the Rugby World Cup in the last week.

“The last week has probably been one of the best of my life and I speak on behalf of all my team-mates and management when I say that the support we’ve received has been nothing but remarkable and unbelievable,” Kolisi said.

“The celebrations in Tokyo, with President Cyril Ramaphosa, Minister Nathi Mthethwa and Prince Harry in attendance, were very special, but nothing could prepare us for what was waiting back here in South Africa.”

“From our arrival at OR Tambo International Airport last Tuesday, the reception with Ramaphosa at the Union Buildings, meeting and greeting our loyal sponsors, and receptions by local government around the country, it’s been a fantastic and whirlwind week,” he said, but they won the Webb Ellis Cup for ordinary South Africans and to be able to present the trophy to them, has been phenomenal.
