Media statement                                                                                            30 October 2023

Cllr Cilliers Brink

Executive Mayor of Tshwane

On behalf of the City of Tshwane and our residents, I would like to officially congratulate our national rugby team, the Springboks, on a historic World Cup victory in Paris on Saturday night, beating New Zealand 11-12 in a closely contested game.

The Boks are truly an inspiration to all of us and have proven that we can be a country of winners despite all the challenges we are facing.

Led by Captain Siya Kolisi, the Boks faced and defeated all the top-ranked rugby nations on their way to becoming the first team in history to lift the Webb Ellis Cup for a record fourth time.

I want to thank the Boks for giving us a national moment of joy and pride. There is so much that brings us together, we are not just a country of problems and challenges, we are stronger together.

I am looking forward to meeting Captain Siya Kolisi and the team during the victory parade on Thursday. The capital city is ready to host the champs.

Well done to the team, coaching staff and club management!

Well done, Bokke!

You have brought it home!
