Springboks Captain Siya Kolisi has thanked South Africans for supporting the team in their Trophy Tour victory parade. The team has visited different parts of the country including, among others, Pretoria, East London, Durban and Soweto. The last-leg of the five days parade was on Monday in Cape Town.
Hundreds of Springboks supporters lined the streets of Belhar to welcome the 2019 Rugby World champions, as they passed through the area on their victory parade. Scores of supporters patiently waited outside the entrances of the Cape Peninsula University of Technology and the University of the Western Cape to get a glimpse of their heroes.
They sang and danced with excitement. One supporter said she wants the Springboks to win every World Cup.
The Springboks finished their victory tour in Elsies River.
Kolisi has apologised to fans in Durban and Port Elizabeth who could not be part of the celebrations because of route changes.
South African Rugby is planning more trophy visits to other parts of the country but has not given any timelines yet.
