South Africans turned out in their numbers at the OR Tambo International Airport to welcome the Boks back from New Zealand – proving that win or lose, the fans are still behind the men in green and gold. Although the Boks lost 11-9 to Australia in their quarter-final match of the Rugby World Cup, Deputy Minister of Sport Gert Oosthuizen said they were still national heroes. Oosthuizen, who was also at the airport to welcome them, said their exit from the World Cup had been heartbreaking and painful, but the team had given their best. “You fought so hard to retain the cup and you are really national heroes,” he said.
