“Sport has the power to change the world…it has the power to inspire. It has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language they understand. Sport can create hope
where once there was only despair. It is more powerful than government in breaking down racial barriers.” – Madiba
Words and a scene that will be etched in many Rugby fans memory banks whether jy nou die All Blacks support (en jy bly in Suid Afrika) en of jy nie die verskil tussen ‘n bok en ‘n cheetah weet nie….the World stood still together with South Africa as we celebrated winning the Rugby World Cup 20 years ago. 😀
The final score was RSA 15 – 12 NZL this was a proud moment for a nation lifted from the struggle….12 years later they would lift it again in Fance beating England with the score RSA 15 – Eng 6.
Only 86 days left till the next World Cup will Zuma be the one to shake the hand of the captain as we try to make it 3rd time lucky :-D….281 games have been played in the Rugby World Cup History since 1987 waar was jy toe Micheal Jones die eerste try score uh ek was noggie eens gebore nie o_O.
Bryan Habana and Lomu hold the record for the most tries in one game 8….maar Lomu nog altyd die ou met 15 tries in World Cup history.
With controversy rife over the new Springbok jersey, the bok emblem now situated on the shoulder of the players….met my maak it nie saak nie ek weet my hart is groen en goud…when that final whistle is blown, ( the first game of every Rugby World Cup match has been started by the same whistle )…I will be screaming for the Bokke to lift the trophy once again. ( In 2010 the vuvuzela was used as the whistle in the Soccer World Cup oops got side tracked sorry ).
Hier Kom Die Bokke
