From 1984, during apartheid, South Africa was banned from taking part in international rugby competition. When apartheid was abolished, the Springboks were readmitted and the team went on to participate in the 1995 Rugby World Cup. The team went on to win the world cup final versus New Zealand team. In an iconic moment known well to nearly all South Africans, newly elected President Nelson Mandela, wearing a green and gold Springbok jersey, presented the Ellis Cup to white Afrikaans Captain Francois Pienaar.
