Ramaphosa hails Springbok Rugby World Cup triumph


President Cyril Ramaphosa has expressed his elation at the Springboks’ triumph in the 2019 Rugby World Cup in Japan.

Speaking shortly after South Africa's 32 - 12 victory over England in Yokohama on Saturday, he congratulated captain Siya Kolisi, coach Rassie Erasmus and the technical staff, the tournament squad, the team on the day, and the leadership of SA Rugby for securing the Webb Ellis Trophy at the first rugby world cup to be staged in Asia.

Ramaphosa said this was a powerful indicator of what we could achieve as South Africans when we set goals for ourselves and work together to achieve success.

He said this was a moment of inspiration for all South Africans.

Ramaphosa also commended England as worthy finalists, and said the World Cup result would ensure intense interest and competition in the 2021 tour of South Africa by the British & Irish Lions, featuring the best players from England, Ireland, Scotland, and Wales.
