For pure drama, the 1995 final against New Zealand will overshadow one of the Springbok’s finals against England. The score was 9-9 at full-time and 12-12 in overtime. The fate of the Webb Ellis Cup remained undecided until Joel Stransky got the ball from Joost van der Westhuizen. And made history for himself and the Springboks.
While the sight of Nelson Mandela presenting. The Webb Ellis Cup to Francois Pienaar in the Springbok captain’s number six jersey in 1995.

Ten places and just over 13 points were shared by the sides of the rugby world rankings as South Africa. And Japan met on the second day of RWC 2015. Japan has not won an RWC competition since 1991, while South Africa became world champions in both 1995 and 2007. No one prayed for the Brave Blossoms. But the form came out of the window as the Springboks succumbed to the biggest shock in tournament history. Losing 34-32 on Karne Hesketh’s last try.
Chester Williams. Now sadly dead, Williams became only the third non-white player to play for the Springboks in 1993. Two years later, he was a reluctant poster boy for the 1995 Rugby World Cup. The injury delayed his participation in the 1995 RWC until the quarter-finals. But he immediately impressed with four tries against Samoa and then played a key role in the semi-finals and finals.
Anyone who shares a record with Jonah Lomu should be good, very good. And Bryan Habana definitely falls into that category. The lightning-fast winger equaled Lomu’s record in most tournament attempts. And compiling his hat-trick in a 64-0 win over the U.S. at RWC 2015 and glittering a total of 15 points.
Jannie de Beer’s nap against England in the 1999 quarter-finals is a record for a single Rugby World Cup match.
“I got down on my knees to pray quickly, and before I knew it, everyone was around me. All the tension in those six weeks, everything that led to the final, came just upfront. It was very, very emotional. I was incredibly proud of the team, proud of the moment. And very proud to be a Springbok rugby player.” – Francois Pienaar, after the Springboks won the 1995 RWC final.
