The Boks start arriving back in South Africa on Tuesday evening following their stunning triumph at the 2019 World Cup in Japan. 

They will not have much time to rest, though, with the parade starting in Johannesburg, Soweto and Pretoria on Thursday. 

The Boks will then move to Durban (Friday, November 8), East London (Saturday, November 9), Port Elizabeth (Sunday, November 10) and Cape Town (Monday, November 11) to take the trophy to all corners of the country. 

The team will be transported in an open-air tour bus and will be escorted through the streets by local traffic police. 

Only members of the squad and Springbok management will be allowed to handle the Webb Ellis Cup.

If, for some reason, any other authorised personnel need to handle the trophy, they will wear gloves before doing so.
