Speech - Min Mbalula: Welcoming function of the National Team, The Springboks from the 2011 IRB Rugby World Cup

On 01 September 2011, our nation called upon our ‘last line of defence’; the Springboks – our glorious army in the field of sport and recreation to go and defend our national pride and glory. On that fateful day the people of the Republic of South Africa commanded our ‘sport marines’, amaBhokoBhoko to go to New Zealand and raise our Flag High in pursuit of victory and glory. We called upon national squad to use our military strength and infrastructure in the war to defend our trophy. They did this job diligently!
