One very happy little boy recently enjoyed the experience of a lifetime, as he and his dad jetted off to watch the Springboks win the 2019 Rugby World Cup in Japan. 

His mom shared some pics of him on tour, and we are smitten with this mini-Siya!

Dzingira-junior Matenga's mom told Parent24 that her son is one lucky boy indeed, but that before he left South Africa he promised his classmates that he would bring back the trophy, and we think he kept his promise! 

You'll agree when you see this adorable video sent to us by his mom Thandekile, showing his classmates excited reaction to his return, that he received a homecoming welcome almost on par with that of the Springboks team.
