'The dominance with which Springboks won RWC is absolutely mind-blowing'

The sports writer says the dominance with which the Boks won is quite extraordinary and highlights how coach Rassie Erasmus worked towards an end goal.

Most importantly about the scrums, the way Erasmus and his team team have rotated the side. He's always tried to keep his forward pack quite fresh - 'I need you guys to be as hard and as brutal as possible in that final'.

And the way he trusted his players to perform and not shy away from how big the occasion's going to be and how big the demand is on them.

He and his team and Siya Kolisi deserve so much credit for the turnaround.

She notes how in the post-match interviews, the central principle was everyone coming together for a common goal in rugby and also in a wider sense.

I think that for Erasmus, the common goal is for South Africa to be the best in rugby, in every single facet everywhere.
