Cape Town - The airplane carrying the Springboks back to South Africa following their Rugby Championship victory over Argentina on Saturday, has been stuck on the runway for over an hour.

According to a tweet from Satawu (South African Transport and Allied Workers Union), SAA technicians have confirmed the #Springboks have been stuck on the runway for 68 minutes on flight 227 from Buenos Aries.

The Boks beat Argentina 22-17 in a scrappy match on Saturday in Mendoza to retain their top-spot in the standings.

The Boks' next match is against Australia in Brisbane on September 7 (12:05 SA time).
