The game was a tight affair with no tries in 100 minutes of rugby and the Springboks opted to mark Jonah Lomu out of the game after his demolition of England in the semi-final. The game was tied 9-9 after normal time and both Joel Stransky and Andrew Mehrtens scored an early extra-time penalty before Stransky clinched the trophy with his late dropped goal.
The game will be remembered for the iconic celebrations after the game where Sprinkgbok captain Francois Pienaar received the Webb Ellis Trophy from the South Afrcian President, Nelson Mandela, who was wearing a Springbok jersey with Pienaar's number six on the back.
