"We have been inspired by this beautiful display of talent and stamina," Mchunu said on Sunday.

Mchunu said that the people of KwaZulu-Natal have been on an emotional roller-coaster throughout the cup final.

"We have mobilised people of this province to go to the King Shaka International Airport to welcome our heroes in style."

Mchunu said that the provincial government will line up a series of victory celebrations as part promoting the great heritage of the Sharks.
