Pollard joins Boks in Cape Town after successful op

Springbok flyhalf Handre Pollard says that he is well on his way to recovery after suffering a broken cheekbone in the Rugby World Cup final.

Pollard sustained the injury in South Africa's 32-12 win over England in the final in Yokohama.

"It's great to be with the boys, I've missed them so much. We've really gotten so tight so being away for two days was really tough," Pollard told News24.

'Aweh!' Kolisi and co delight thousands in Cape Town with one-of-a-kind entrance

"Aweh, ma se kind!" Springbok captain Siya Kolisi shouted to the delight of thousands of "beautiful people" who had gathered at Cape Town's Grand Parade to congratulate the Boks on their Rugby World Cup win in Japan.

Fans threw proteas on the stage, the national anthem was sung for a second time before the noon-day gun had gone off, and the late Brenda Fassie's Vulindlela was the cue for the organisers to open the way for their victory lap around the Cape Town CBD in the green open-topped bus.

A song, a dance and more Speedos: Cape Town embraces Boks for final trophy tour flurry

Thousands of Capetonians packed the streets on Monday morning to catch a glimpse of the Springboks as they paraded the trophy for the last leg of their homecoming tour.

Cape Town fans did not disappoint with their flags and finery, with one man even running down Long Street to massive cheers in just his SA flag Speedo, and a replica gold trophy proudly held above his head.

Holding the real deal that was won in Japan, Bok captain Siya Kolisi told the huge crowd gathered in front of the City Hall that everyone had come together for rugby, despite their differences. 

"It's time for us South Africans to stop fighting, stop arguing and move forward as a country," he said to massive applause.
