'Durban is the most lovely city,' says Springbok Captain, Siya Kolisi

"It's been a lot of hard work especially for our coaching staff. Coach Rassie [Erasmus], thank you so much for pushing our boundaries and making us believe that we can achieve whatever we desire, as long as we work hard", said Kolisi to cheering from the jubilant crowds.

Erasmus added that 37 players will be at a training camp in Bloemfontein from Sunday to Wednesday, after which six players will be cut as he puts the finishing touches to the Springbok Rugby World Cup squad. "Thank you, the most attractive city I've ever seen", he said to thunderous applause from the crowd.

'Free State Rugby experienced unprecedented unhappiness and disappointment from all over the central region this week about the news that the Springbok trophy tour will not be visiting the central region of South Africa, ' the statement read. We are saying, "you are warriors, you are our heroes, you have made us proud as South Africans".

In Stanza Bopape Street, Zimbabwean national Abel Muchemwa said that the Springboks have become an African symbol of unity.

GOP demands Adam Schiff testify in private in Impeachment inquiry
Jim Jordan, (R-Ohio), speaks to the media during a press conference in Washington on October 23, 2019. Crawford will return to the committee after the impeachment probe is concluded.

Springbok team Captain Siya Kolisi took the time to greet the fans and took selfies moments before the Boks embarked on their victory parade, which began outside the hotel, moving to the East London beachfront for the first stop at the city hall.

"(But) I can honestly say that winning the Rugby World Cup is the ideal ending and cherry on top. Tendai Mtawarira, all the way from Zimbabwe, was very pivotal in that win.

The team will also recognise the country's newest nation builder, captain Kolisi, by taking the World Cup to the people of the Zwide township in the Eastern Cape province where he grew up.

Cities such as Durban and Port Elizabeth were excluded, with the parade only taking place in Johannesburg and Cape Town.
