Hon House Chairperson, allow the IFP to congratulate the Springboks on their Rugby World Cup victory this past weekend in Japan. This victory is not the victory of a single team, but rather the victory of a nation who must take the life lesson offered through sport.
The Springbok victory brings my thoughts to fall upon the famous words of Helen Keller:
Alone, we can do little. Together, we can do so much.
This is truly inspirational and fitting for the Springbok victory, because it shows a team that is still busy transforming, yet is still able to achieve so much because it has a common belief.
I was once a young boxer and keen soccer player. I learnt many life lessons which taught me the value of discipline and teamwork. From this I know sport to be the single-most unifying activity.
We wish to thank the entire team, coach Rassie Erasmus and our captain, Siya "The Great" Kolisi. [Applause.] This young man makes
us proud. To bring together a nation ... May your victory be ... [Inaudible.] ... and fulfilling. Thank you.
