So who won the rugby world cup 2019? If you are still in the dark about this question, then read on. There are some interesting facts you might have missed. Hopefully this article has shed some light on the outcome. Who was the best player during the tournament? And which team got the most points? We’ll have an answer for that question in a moment. For now, let’s start with the South African national team. They are known as the Springboks and play in green and gold jerseys and shorts. Their emblem is the antelope Springbok, the national animal of South Africa.
South Africa, which won the tournament for the first time since 1991, was a major surprise to many people. They defeated England 32-12 in the final to match their historic win over New Zealand. This was also the first time a team has won a rugby World Cup title after losing in the pool stage. However, South Africa has had issues off the field and has been fighting for equality for decades. Their captain Siyabonga Kolisi has led their team to victory, bringing the country together with rugby.
South Africa had a difficult time containing Lomu during the final. Lomu had scored four tries against England in the semifinals, and had to be stopped by the Springboks. Joel Stransky traded penalties and drop goals with Andrew Mehrtens. After New Zealand went ahead in extra time, Stransky sunk a penalty to tie the game, then struck a drop goal from 30 meters.
