Injured World Cup victor Pollard misses Springbok celebrations

Coach Rassie Erasmus included six forwards among his eight replacements in key World Cup matches, which allowed him to bring on virtually a new, fresh pack during the second half.

'The region produced a number of Springboks, coaches, referees and administrators over the years and specifically in this World Cup (11 persons were involved - including coaches, players, and even the referee, Jaco Peyper)'.

Crowds of ecstatic Springbok fans lined the Union Buildings' Government Avenue on Thursday morning, hours before the Springboks arrived in Pretoria to kick off their nationwide trophy tour. "We are very grateful, and we are a proud nation", said Fiona.

Residents packed the streets, wearing Springboks colours, and singing, ululating, blowing vuvuzelas, and waving South African flags.

"It's good we don't have an election, I would have to compete with Siya Kolisi".

A quarter of a century after breaking free of apartheid, and 24 years after the Springboks won the Cup for the first time in front of then-president Nelson Mandela, South Africa's progress is still undermined by significant social problems.

Zimbabwe-born Mtawarira, 34, has been a fixture at loose head prop since debuting in 2008 and he is the third most capped Springbok with 117 after retired duo Victor Mayfield and Bryan Habana.

ADDRESSING a crowd of thousands at the Durban City Hall, South African Rugby Captain, Siya Kolisi thanked fans for their support, backing the Springboks as they contended during the Rugby World Cup to win the coveted Web Ellis Trophy.

The trophy tour kicked off in Gauteng on Thursday with the Bok-branded bus travelling through parts of Pretoria, Johannesburg and Soweto.

The tour moves to Port Elizabeth on Sunday, with the final leg in Cape Town on Monday.
