JOHANNESBURG – Springboks captain Siya Kolisi and coach Rassie Erasmus have touched down on home soil with the Webb Ellis Trophy on Tuesday.Hundreds of fans gathered the at the OR Tambo International Airport’s arrival hall to give the team a heroes welcome after they bagged the trophy at the Rugby World Cup in Japan.“We know that we go through a lot of challenges in South Africa… and we all knew that if we lost another game, that was it for us. Like I said earlier, without the support of the people here [we wouldn’t have made it]. We had our people with us and it was really special for us. People might be learning from us but everything we did there, we got from the people of South Africa,” the Boks captain said.Kolisi said Erasmus motivated them throughout the tournament and the support from South Africans fuelled their drive.Kolisi said: “We won because we wanted it a lot. The people here gave us another reason to want it even harder.”Kolisi said winning the tournament was a very proud moment for him and the rest of the team, including the special guest – his father – who flew all the way to Japan just to watch the final match.“I was actually happy to have my dad there. I’m sure it was my dad’s dream to take me to these places, but he didn’t have the means. I’m really proud that he could be there, and it was special for me.”He also thanked Swiss tennis player Roger Federer, Miss SA Zozibini Tunzi, Britain’s Prince Harry for their support and most importantly, the team’s supporting staff.“The coaching staff has been really amazing, they work really hard.”WATCH LIVE: Kolisi, Erasmus & the Webb Ellis Cup touch down in SA
