South Africa's Springboks parade trophy


The heroes of the Rugby World Cup are showing off their trophy in some style. The Springboks have begun their five-day tour of South Africa on Thursday morning, starting with an epic crawl across Gauteng.

The cities of Pretoria and Johannesburg will be the first to celebrate the country’s third World Cup win.

The Boks are the only team to win the Webb Ellis trophy on three different continents – Africa, Europe and Asia. Their stellar achievement was crowned on Tuesday evening, when thousands of fans descended on OR Tambo to give the lads the rousing reception they deserve. Expect that energy to remain throughout the week.
