For every Springbok who has played in a World Cup, or who aspired to play in one, there is that one moment that they look back on.For veterans like Joel Stransky, who kicked the match-winning drop goal in 1995, that moment came when Francois Pienaar held aloft the Webb Ellis trophy in front of 45 000 screaming fans, and one Nelson Mandela.“One single moment of Rugby World Cup history that will live with me forever. It’s a very simple one, it’s clear as day. It is Madiba celebrating behind Francois Pienaar as the raised the trophy,” Stransky said, “For us as South Africans that is absolutely iconic. It was this great man, this great leader, this sensational human being who used sport to unite a nation.”
