On This Day
South Africa beat England 15-6 – five penalties to two – to win the sixth Rugby World Cup final.
England’s surprise march to the final put them within touching distance of becoming the first team to retain the Webb Ellis Cup, but they were undone by the metronomic boot of Percy Montgomery, who scored four penalties, and Frans Steyn’s long-range kick.
Jonny Wilkinson slotted two penalties for England, who also had a ‘try’ to Mark Cueto disallowed for a foot in touch.
John Smit lifted the trophy for the Boks, having packed down at hooker alongside the great Os Du Randt, a survivor of South Africa’s World Cup triumph in 1995.
