October release for Boks documentary

The five-part documentary based on the Springboks’ 2019 World Cup victory, ‘Chasing the Sun’, will be aired on SuperSport on 4 October.

A SuperSport camera crew travelled with the Boks for the duration of 2019, getting unprecedented behind-the-scenes access throughout the lead-up to and during the World Cup in Japan.

With unique access and exclusive contributions from coaching staff, players and commentators, the documentary tells the story of how a team, a nation and the world came to discover that we are all indeed stronger together.

By beating England in a memorable final in Yokohama, the Springboks became the first team to win a World Cup after losing their opening fixture to the All Blacks. Cheslin Kolbe and Makazole Mapimpi became the first two Springboks to score tries in a World Cup final.
