The South Africa Springboks are traditionally one of the sports international powerhouses. Currently ranked third in the World Rugby rankings, the South Africa Springboks are one of the dominant forces in world rugby. With an impressive history of not losing a series between 1903 and 1956, they have some of the most dedicated and passionate supporters.
As part of the Southern Hemisphere Rugby Championship, the ‘Boks’ face an unyielding competition in their International league, and the quality of their competition is reflected in their mixed fortunes. In 2004 and 2009 South Africa won the former tri-nation competition (now The Rugby Championship), The ‘Boks’ won the World Cup Champions in 2007, though they favoured less well in 2011 - beaten at the quarter final stage by familiar rivals, Australia.
The team kit is now made by Asics. The South Africa strip will be a familiar one to many. The distinct green and gold is a firm favourite and the quality and depth of design of the official replica collection is fitting of the South Africa Springboks heritage.
