Japan: South Africa win World Cup for record-equalling third time — highlights

South Africa brushed England aside with power rugby to win their third Rugby World Cup on Sunday at the Yokohama International Stadium. The Springboks relied on a dominant forward pack, punishing English errors to open up a 12-6 lead at half-time. As the game wore on, the men in white were progressively out-muscled, out-run and out-thought. The final score of 32-12, aided by tries from winger... Еще Makazole Mapimpi and Cheslin Kolbe, reflected South African ruthlessness in the final. The victory had special significance for the rainbow nation, with Siya Kolisi, the first black man to captain to Springboks, having the honour to lift the Webb Ellis Cup. The triumph continues a habit of winning the competition every 12 years after victories for the Boks back in 1995 and 2007. They now share the record for most World Cup wins alongside New Zealand.
