Pretoria – The Springboks sent the capital city into throes of excitement and ecstasy yesterday.

The huge Pretoria base of adoring fans came out for the trophy parade. Through a sea of green and gold, the bus carrying the 2019 Rugby World Cup champions snaked its way through the streets in a victory parade like none other.

First stop was with President Cyril Ramaphosa at the Union Building, just after 8am.

The crowd cheered when Ramaphosa arrived on the makeshift stage to meet the team led by coach Rassie Erasmus.

Several government ministers, including Bheki Cele, Patricia de Lille and Pravin Gordhan, and officials of the SA Rugby Union were present.
