Well done Springboks

Congratulations to the Springboks on winning the Rugby World Cup.

It was a tough and a tense game, with both sides giving it everything they had. At times I thought it could go either way, but South Africa prevailed, which was a good thing because our nation would have gone into a serious decline if they had lost. This was just the remedy needed to cure the fever that has been sweeping through the country for the past two months.

Final score - South Africa 15/ England 6

Next stop New Zealand 2011.

Thanks for visiting Cape Town Daily Photo. What an awesome night it was last night! I suspect the rest of the world has no idea just how important this victory was for us as a nation. Let's hope the feeling lasts a long while.

Thanks Tom, I can't help but agree with you. I can also feel your pain.

Hi Kerry-Anne
Thanks for popping in. It was a great night. The great thing is, it does not matter how many matches we lose over the next 4 years - until 2011 we are the world champions

Ah, we were lucky to have even made it through to the finals, that in itself was a result - but it still didn't stop most of the family from going in to a state of mourning for the week-end, 'twas sack cloth and ashes all round (eyes rolled heavenwards)!

Hi Carol
Aside from their first game against SA, England played well. I hate to think what the mood would have been like had SA lost. As it is some politicians were calling for today to be declared a public holiday (eyes also rolled heavenwards). Had we lost I think they may have called for a national day of mourning.
