Kolisi was speaking to media and hundreds of supporters who had made their way to the OR Tambo International Airport for a press briefing in Johannesburg ahead of the teams Trophy tour.

“The proteas are in India, and they are making us proud. They are fighting as hard as they can, and they’ve been sending us messages of support. They really deserve our support and they’ve been showing us that they deserve it. They’re going to do something that’s never been done before, so we have to support them like we’ve never done before.

“We hope we’ve given them a little bit of motivation. Imagine us winning the world cup and the Proteas also do it, so Themba and the team, we are all behind you, we love you and we appreciate you,” said Kolisi.

The Springboks arrived in South Africa on Tuesday after winning the Rugby World Cup 2023 and are getting ready to do their Trophy tour which will commence on Thursday.

The Proteas have given a stellar performance in their previous games, winning  5 of the 6 matches they have played so far in the World Cup, and they are still to go against India and Afghanistan.
