Cape Town - Springbok fullback Willie le Roux has tweeted a pic of himself and James O'Connor partying after the Boks' match against the World XV on Saturday in Cape Town.

The Springboks and the World XV hit the town after their match at Newlands to share war stories and smash a few beers.

The Boks won 47-13.

With a strong contingent of South African players in the World XV - as well as a few Aussies and Kiwis - it gave the Springboks a chance to catch up with old friends.

For many the match before had been business as usual: Bakkies Botha and Bryan Habana, for example, had five of their Toulon team-mates playing against them.

Despite a few handbags and some argy-bargy during the match, off the pitch it was all smiles and handshakes with Le Roux posing for a snap with his opposite number, former Wallaby back O'Connor, which he posted along with this message:

"Top night out with the man @JamesOConnor832 safe travels bud and good luck for the rest of the season pic.twitter.com/frYx609qnR"
