World Champions: SPRINGBOKS

South Africa has overtaken the defenders of the Webb Ellis Trophy, the English, by a score of 15-6. This is much to the joy of many fans around the world, as many were confused to how England even got this far. They had scares throughout the group stage, including having quite the problem with still-minnow United States, but to their credit, they were able to overcome adversity to get to the final, only to be beaten by the South Africans for the second time this tournament. The first score was a lopsided 36-0.

South Africa is the only unbeaten in the World Cup this year. They overpowered everyone they played and looked like a sure favorite from game one, when they ran all over Samoa 59-7.

Here’s to the champions of the 2007 Rugby World Cup in France.
