It's only the beginning for the Springbok team they turned it around so far. We mustn't see this as a destination.

Ray says Kolisi's childhood plays a massive role in helping the team deal with the pressure of the world cup.

When you have a captain who is immune to that level of pressure it filters down to the team.

Craig Ray, Senior Sports journalist - Daily Maverick

It came down to who handled the pressure best and who better than the man who fought for survival to handle the pressure in a rugby final.
