Historic moment for South Africa rugby team which becomes second team after New Zealand to win three Rugby World Cup trophies. Springboks defeated England in the final of 2019 world cup to claim their third title as country won tournament in 1995 and 2007.
Siya Kolisi, the skipper of world cup winning Springboks side mentioned that he’s just 16-year old when South Africa won 2007 world cup and he’d never thought that he’d lead the country side and team would become champions once again.
Undoubtedly England were favorites in the game from the start of finale as they’re coming into the match by defeating two-time title defending champions All Blacks with their brilliant showcase. Things didn’t work for them on Saturday night and Proteas beat them comprehensively by 32-12 tries.
Makazole Mapimpi became hero for South Africa in the competition as he scored 6 tries, second most after Wales’ Jose Adams. The next edition of rugby world cup is due to be held in France in 2023.
