From schoolkids and scientists on the S.A. Agulhas to the president and the Arch, SA is united behind the national side.

It's finally here - the day South Africa get their chance to lift the Web Ellis trophy for a third time, and Springbok fever is running high.

The country's beloved archbishop emeritus, Desmond Tutu, thanked the Springboks for making us feel good about ourselves again, saying the team would be carried by the love of millions at home.
