Sports news on Saturday

Rugby World Cup

Saturday was a massive day in sports, and no event came bigger than the Rugby World Cup final. 

The Springboks made South Africa proud by lifting the Webb-Ellis trophy for the third time after beating England 32-12.

Telkom Knockout

The day’s other big fixture was in the Telkom Knockout quarterfinals, where Soweto rivals Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates squared off.

It turned out to be a highly-entertaining affair, which stretched over 120 minutes before a penalty shootout proved too steep a task for the Buccaneers, who had finished the game with ten men.

Amakhosi are joined in the semifinals by Maritzburg United, who too needed the help of a shootout to progress through, beating Highlands Park on Friday night.

The other team to secure a spot in the last four is Golden Arrows, after upsetting Supersport United on Saturday night.
