Willie Le Roux blasted by own fans following unsportsmanlike actions

The Springbok’s victory over England will go down in history as one of the hardest-fought wins in South African rugby history. Despite being touted as favourites before the match had begun, they were well and truly outplayed for 70 minutes of the match.

It was the incredible performance from the Springbok bomb squad that turned the tide for the reigning world champions, as the big men thumped England’s own replacements back to their training ground just outside of Paris.

Although a match like this would normally spark a lot of heated debate between the two sets of fans, the reaction has been quite calm between the camps. Springbok fans are happy to admit that the English side were a better side on the day and find themselves relieved to make the final, English fans collectively agreeing the Springbok replacements were simply superb.

For once, things have been more reasonable off of the field than they have been on it. Willie Le Roux has been heavily criticised by fans for his reaction to England losing, with many calling him unprofessional for deliberately celebrating in front of the England players, which then caused the ruckus at the end of the match.
