Providing hope for a nation rebuilding
The South African rugby team is represented by its native Springbok antelope and King Protea plant. They played their first test matches against a touring team from the British Isles in 1891 and despite losing all twenty games of the series, the country's interest in rugby grew and its team became one of the toughest in the sport over the coming decades. Amongst anti-apartheid protests, the Springboks saw a golden period throughout the 1960s and 1970, leading up to the first world cup in 1987. Although the team was instrumental in the creation of the tournament, they did not compete in the first two because of sporting boycotts opposing apartheid in South Africa. Their first world cup appearance came when they hosted the competition in 1995, which led to one of the greatest sporting moments in the history of the country. The Springboks defeated the mighty All Blacks (the New Zealand National Rugby Union Team) 15-12 in a monumental final seen as a huge boost to the rebuilding of the nation in its post-apartheid era. A team whose history parallels that of the country it represents, they've certainly provided more epic moments over the years. See them live and buy or sell South Africa Rugby tickets via StubHub!
Top of the world rankings and Rugby Championship
Just twelve years after their world title, South Africa won the world cup once again, this time taking down England Rugby Union in the final of the 2007 tournament. It was this that led to a world number one ranking spot and a World Team of the Year award at the 2008 Laureus World Sports Awards. It's not just the world cup where South Africa have made their mark in rugby union. They also compete in The Rugby Championship, formerly known as the Tri Nations. Here they compete against the southern-hemisphere teams Argentina, Australia and New Zealand and have won numerous times. Aside from tournaments such as this, they also play in test matches against teams from around the world, such as Wales Rugby Union and Ireland.
