The Springboks have returned to the country, and they, along with the whole country, are obviously still feeling quite high following their victory against the All Blacks in France over the weekend.
There is plenty to be happy about being the only nation to win the Rugby World Cup twice in a row and four times overall.
Many squad members received tattoos of the Webb Ellis Cup and the winning years as a way to commemorate the victory. RG Snyman and Siya Kolisi are among the players.
The greatest attention, though, has been drawn to fly-half Damian Willemse’s tattoo.
and with good cause! Not averse to flaunting his ink on his butt cheek.
The Cape Town resident, 25, posted a photo of his new tattoo on Instagram.
With the comment, “For All The Dogs…🖊🏆🇿🇦😂,” the Instagram clip was shared. Prior to revealing a grinning Willemse, “#BackToBack” displays a close-up of the tattoo on his butt.
Of course, many people were salivating over the hot film, which attracted a lot of attention.
The film made its way onto X, a place where individuals don’t hesitate to express their opinions.
The video was uploaded by X user @sanelenkosix, and it has around 6 million views now.
She tweeted: “Damian Willemse just had the Rugby World Cup trophy tattooed on his bum,” along with a photo of Willemse holding the Webb Ellis Cup.
@_Nwai, an X user, said: “He is skilled at what he does. The nation as a whole is in a frenzy 😭.
The bible doesn’t include any of my ideas, JenSainty remarked.
@arxhiiie commented, clearly preoccupied with the video: “The way i struggled to focus reading this caption.”
