As the Springboks prepare for the Rugby World Cup final in Japan, some 15 000km back in Cape Town, a group of fitness and rugby-mad fanatics trekked to the top of Lion's Head to wish the national team well.The final, which kicks off at 11:00 local time on Saturday, is a repeat of the 2007 final when the Boks edged England 15-6 to hoist the Webb Ellis Cup for the second time, with the first being the historic 1995 win.Sports journalists and people in general have looked to the 12-year gap between the two World Cup finals wins as a good omen for coach Rassie Erasmus and his team.The message was clear from the hikers: "Go Bokke."As part of @News24’s extended coverage of the #RWC2019 final, we’re joining the collaborative effort of, among others @UbumboLegends & @10sSeries as they climb to the top of Lion’s Head to “wish the Springboks luck” for Saturday’s final. #WebbEllisCup @TeamNews24 @Sport24news pic.twitter.com/FjeAXu8fEu— Kamva Somdyala (@kamva_somdyala) October 30, 2019Joining the hiking party on Wednesday was a man who knows a thing or two about winning a final - 2007 fullback Percy Montgomery."We're on Lion's Head in Cape Town.
