On Saturday, almost 30 years after that fateful day in 1995, the Springboks will meet the All Blacks again in the Rugby World Cup final. The winners will reserve their place in history as the first men’s team to win four World Cup titles.

The team has been announced and the sideshows dealt with. On home soil, Bok jerseys are coming out of the wash just in time to be worn again. In what promises to be a battle for the ages, it’s the Springboks against the All Blacks in the final in Paris.

Do you have thoughts on game tactics? Or words of motivation? What do you want the men in green and gold to know when they run onto the grass in Stade de France?

    You are champions of the rugby world play and conduct yourselves on the field Saturday like you truly
    believe it and when the battle is over and the dust has settled you the SA Springboks will still wear the crown as the greatest team that has ever played this glorious game

  • Karel Vlok says:

    May I respectfully suggest that the whitish Bokke, when the ball comes out at the wrong side, do not call our “swart kant” but rather “annerkant”. I do not know what all this fuss is about, the Bokke is going comfortably retain the World Cup – and in the unlikely event that the final score is wrong, we’ll blame the Ref.

  • Kathleenwelch2 says:

    We’re with you every step of the way. Go Bokke, go!

  • Denzil Feinberg says:

    Tomorrow I’ll watch this historic Final in Winnipeg which has maybe the largest rugby & sports club in Canada: Maple Grove Rugby Club. There’ll be a braai, koeksusters, maybe 100+ supporters of SA and New Zealand, where some of my & many SA families now live. Boks should do “Jerusalema” line-dance against the Kiwi “Haka”. Fun vs bluster could be the extra winning nature.

  • Rona van Niekerk says:

    Bokke – Hou die blink kant bo!!

  • Ludovici DIVES says:

    Good luck boys, finish this off. Win or lose you are champions.

  • Fanie Rajesh Ngabiso says:

    Take it to them guys, we’re all rooting for you.

    Go our boks!

  • Theo Cromhout says:

    This team has made me so proud to be a South African and is a shining example of what we are capable of as a country. Win or lose tonight, these remarkable ambassadors and athletes have done an incredible amount of unite and mend a country that has had very little to be proud of over the years. Springboks, I salute you and everything that you stand for and am so grateful for everything that you have done for us as the people of South Africa. Best of luck tonight lads, an entire nation is behind you.


    Hi Guys-we know you will do your best and we trust and believe you will succeed!-Go Bokke !!!

  • Middle aged Mike says:

    A great many people back home are rooting hard for you, all the best for the game and remember, hou julle kant skoon. Don’t let the presence of the likes of Ramaphosa and Kodwa trying to get some undeserved glory to rub off on their useless hides put you off.

  • Beaullah Mahlangu says:

    Its Monday morning in Kelowna BC, Canada 🇨🇦 and I’m still floating in this cloud of happiness from our boys’ Saturday win over The All Blacks…. So proud of our Springboks 🇿🇦 🇿🇦🇿🇦
