And Still, the Champions of the world! South Africa retains RWC after intense battle

South Africa has clinched back-to-back championships with a nail-biting victory over the All Blacks by just one point. Their solid defence thwarted every attempt by the All Blacks to secure additional points, securing their 4th Rugby World Cup Title.

The All Blacks faced a challenging 50 minutes with only 14 players on the field, a situation mirrored by South Africa at different points due to yellow cards. Ultimately, it was discipline that made the difference on the scoreboard. Despite one try from the All Blacks, the All Blacks were unable to match the penalty points accumulated by South Africa, leading to their defeat.

Under immense pressure, South Africa showcased remarkable composure and delivered an outstanding performance.
