SA Rugby magazine recaps what the 28 squad members have done since winning the World Cup 26 years ago.
On this day 26 years ago, Joel Stransky hit a late drop goal as the Springboks beat the All Blacks 15-12 at Ellis Park after extra time to win their maiden Rugby World Cup at the first attempt.
Former Springbok captain Francois Pienaar has opened up about the moment between himself and late President Nelson Mandela after the 1995 World Cup final.
The Springboks were in a shambles and ranked a lowly seventh in the World Rugby rankings in September 2018. Just over a year later, Siya Kolisi lifted the World Cup in Yokohama, as the Boks were once again crowned the best in the world.
The Springboks will honour the legacy of Nelson Mandela, who would have turned 100 this year, in Port Elizabeth on Saturday.
