Cape Town - Reaction to the Springboks' 2019 Rugby World Cup final demolition of England has taken social media and WhatsApp groups by storm.

The Springboks, expertly coach by Rassie Erasmus and led by Siya Kolisi, thrashed their English opponents 32-12 to pick up a third World Cup victory following successes in 1995 (at home) and 2007 (in France).
