The World Champion Springboks have arrived at the Moses Mabhida Stadium after a procession from Umhlanga to Durban where thousands of cheering fans got a glimpse of their heroes and the Webb Ellis Trophy.

Supporters – decked out in green and gold and waving South African flags – say they were ecstatic to see the Boks.

“Oh I’m just so excited I cannot believe it we came to meet the Bokke…We are the ones! Our blood is green!… South Africa, proudly South African… Thank you Bokke for bringing the William Webb Ellis Cup home.”

Earlier, Springbok captain Siya Kolisi expressed his gratitude to the people of KwaZulu-Natal, addressing hundreds of people at the Durban City Hall.

“Siyabulela kakhulu bantu baKwaZulu-Natal, thank you people of KwaZulu-Natal.”

Springbok supporters have continued to celebrate the team’s arrival in Durban, long after the bus passed them.
