Japan: Rassie Erasmus says 'South Africans never give up' after winning Rugby World Cup

South African National Rugby Team Head Coach Rassie Erasmus spoke of how proud he was of his team after defeating England to take from the 2019 Rugby World Cup in Yokohama on Saturday. «We are so proud not just because we've won the trophy, but because we are South Africans and a lot of people thought we'd never make it. And we just believe South Africans never give up. And that makes us really... Еще proud,» Erasmus said. South Africa's team captain Siya Kolisi echoed Erasmus's remarks, saying that Erasmus «kept on telling us how good we are... and it drove us to work hard and it drove us to places we haven't been to before.» «I've never seen such so support from our people back at home. And I honestly don't think we could have done it without them, you know? And, you know, everywhere we saw those videos, people sending videos, people coming together, it was really beautiful for us to see,» Kolisi added. South Africa's Springboks defeated England 32-12 in a physically draining encounter, reminding fans of the 2007 final where England was also overpowered by the Boks. Their triumph continues a habit of winning the competition every 12 years after victories for the Boks back in 1995 and 2007. The victory had special significance for the rainbow nation, with their first-ever black captain Siya Kolisi having the honour to lift the Webb Ells trophy. South Africa now shares the record for most World Cup wins alongside New Zealand.
