Last updated on November 11, 2019

South Africans had on Sat­ur­day burst into fes­tiv­i­ties when Amabokoboko lift­ed the Webb Ellis Tro­phy.

This fol­lows the deliv­ery of cup onto the pitch at Yoko­hama Sta­di­um in Japan by a New Land Rover Defend­er.

The Boks got the high ground over Eng­land, beat­ing them 32–12 to become the 2019 Rug­by World Cup cham­pi­ons.

Amabokoboko, lift­ed the tro­phy for a record match­ing third time, a remark­able feat only achieved by New Zealand.

After the last whis­tle, Spring­boks cap­tain, Siya Kolisi expressed grat­i­tude toward South Africans, from the indi­vid­u­als on the home­steads to those in the she­beens and in the city.

“We can accom­plish any­thing in the event that we coop­er­ate as one,” said Kolisi.

Richie McCaw car­ried the Webb Ellis Tro­phy as the New Defend­er parad­ed it for the 70,000 fans in the Sta­di­um.

McCaw held the Webb Ellis Tro­phy aloft out of the roof of the New Defend­er before hand­ing it over to World Rug­by Chair­man Sir Bill Beau­mont.

“It was a huge hon­our to be a part of the cel­e­bra­tions here in Japan tonight. I con­grat­u­late South Africa on their win. Being in this icon­ic New Land Rover Defend­er, in front of the crowds and car­ry­ing the Webb Ellis Tro­phy was some­thing I will nev­er for­get.

Through­out this tour­na­ment, the South Africa side have shown they are unstop­pable, incom­pa­ra­ble, and tough and, capa­ble of great things — qual­i­ties shared with this fan­tas­tic New Defend­er,” said McCaw.

As a com­pli­ment to the South African Nation­al Rug­by team, Range Rover has paint­ed Range Rover Sport with Spring­boks’ spe­cif­ic green colour and logo.

This makes the sport car unique, while is the first and only vehi­cle, fin­ished in Spring­bok colours as a trib­ute to the team.

Land Rover Chief Design Offi­cer, Ger­ry McGov­ern, Land Rover, said the New Defend­er is the define dura­bil­i­ty.

“We built it for adven­tur­ous hearts and curi­ous minds, for those who knows com­mu­ni­ty val­ues and strive to be dif­fer­ent.

Our rug­by com­mu­ni­ties shares these val­ues through­out the world.

It’s a priv­i­lege to bring the vehi­cle to Japan to share it with those who are here to embrace Rug­by. World Cup and shown such gen­eros­i­ty to the fans who sup­port their nations,” said McGov­ern.
