Cape Town - Springbok wing JP Pietersen has called his 2007 World Cup-winning experienced his "most cherished rugby memory".
Friday marked the 10-year anniversary of South Africa's triumph in Paris where they beat England 15-6 to win their second World Cup title, and Pietersen played a pivotal role in that tournament.

At just 21, Pietersen played all of South Africa's seven matches at the tournament and scored four tries along the way.
Now 31, he has gone on to represent the Springboks in 70 Tests and he has 24 tries to his name.
He has not yet retired from international rugby and is still available for Springbok selection, but Pietersen has not played since last November when the Boks were beaten by England at Twickenham.
The former Sharks man took to Twitter on Friday to share his feeling on what was one of the greatest days in the history of South African rugby.
