The 1995 World Champions, The Springboks: One team, One country. 

The 1995 Rugby World Cup final against the All Blacks was the most important day in South African rugby history. It was a momentous day, inspired from above, and the effect on our great nation was unbelievable.

Throughout the tournament South Africa was guided by a higher power as it beat many of the major rugby nations: Australia, France, and, finally, the All Blacks.

To see Nelson Mandela in the Springbok jersey, handing over the William Webb Ellis trophy to the Springbok captain was an unbelievable occasion in South African history. Madiba thanked Francois Pienaar for his contribution, but we are all indebted to the great man for his role in rescuing South Africa.
