On Sunday, after the Springboks secured a spot in the 2019 Rugby World Cup finals, Siya Kolisi and the boys thanked South Africans for their support.
"Thank you so much for your support. It really means a lot to us, we gave our best for you today. Please, one more week to go, six more days. Just keep on supporting us and ja, send the messages. We appreciate."
South Africans once again congratulated the Springboks on their win and they assured them their support.
Lerato Mbele, who goes by the Twitter handle @Mbele_Roberts, commented:
"We are proud. Congratulations Springboks. Focus boys, bring the trophy to where it belongs. Bring it home, you can do #RugbyWorldCup."
Another tweep, @RugbyGirl411, added:
"All those smiles. So proud. One more week gents. Our country needs this. We appreciate you all."
Twitter user, @surferboy1978, wrote:
"Boys I’m not one to cry but I was in tears today when you boys came through for us. Pride and appreciation for what you boys are doing is an understatement. Now, please pummel the English and bring that trophy home. With lots of love from England."
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za reported earlier that a former test referee believes the Springboks won on a technicality.
Rob Debney said Jerome Garces made a mistake with the Louw penalty and it could have changed the outcome of the game.
