In case you missed it, the Boks beat the English, 32 - 12, in the Rugby World Cup final hosted in Japan. South Africans, the world over, shouted out in victory as the whistle blew signalling the SA team as the rugby champs of the world. 

The mural can be found at the intersection of Sandile Thusi (Argyle) Road and Problem Mkhize (Cowey) Road.
