Well done bokke!

They did it! After 8 weeks of an exciting tournament in France which gripped the whole nation the Springboks proved to be the best of the 20 teams and deservedly won the Rugby world cup 2007!

After the Saturday's victory over a better than expected playing English side in the final, gold and green celebrations lasted the whole night in the streets of Joburg and everywhere else in South Africa.

The players could be sure to have the support of a whole nation (even news presenter's and member's of parliament were wearing green jerseys to work) and being part of it is quite an experience, surely comparable to Germany winning the soccer world cup. By coincidence this will happen in this country the next time... I can't wait...
