Kolisi and Boks touch down in PE

"Today is not a day of speeches, we are in a celebratory mood".

Bok captain Siay Kolisi, who paid a visi to his old school Grey High in the morning "to fetch my brother" spoke about how coach Rassie Erasmus told the team ahead of the final that "this is an opportunity to play for South Africa".

"The most important thing we learnt from you, is that the most important thing is the country - the Springbok badge in front of our chests, not our own ambitions. I would like to thank the rest of the coaching staff as well".

"Beast is someone who never complained, always put in the hard work and simply got on with his job in his typically unassuming way", Alexander said.

"We are so proud of you guys, and we are very grateful that you went out there and brought the trophy home".

"We worked as hard as we could, brought all our differences together and I think that's what made us special as a team".


The Springboks' 32-12 victory against England in Japan has been greeted with joy in South Africa, where rugby was once the preserve of the white minority population.

Siya Kolisi's men touched down in East London late on Friday afternoon from Durban before conducting their tour from City Hall to various areas around Buffalo City on Saturday.

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.

The World Cup-winning Springboks began their homecoming tour on Thursday as thousands of people cheered them in Pretoria and President Cyril Ramaphosa joked he was less popular than captain Siya Kolisi.
