South Africa has won the Rugby World Cup, beating New Zealand 12-11 in a rain-soaked heavyweight tussle at the Stade de France on Saturday October 28. They certainly did it the hard way – and prevailed. It’s almost ridiculous – how on earth does a team anywhere, in any sport, win three colossal matches by one point each time? France, England and New Zealand will look at this in the days and weeks to come and think ‘how did that happen?’ Well, the Springboks happened.
