The Boks are bringing home the Webb Ellis Cup this week and Mzansi couldn't be prouder.

Our boys in green and gold are coming back to South Africa this week and according to SA Rugby mag, they will be touring several parts of the country.

They are set to visit Durban on Friday, November 8. Here's a look at their other tour dates:

Local and international celebrities have joined scores of South Africans in sending messages to our boys in green and gold.

South African comedian Trevor Noah said "proud is an understatement".

"To say we’re proud would be an understatement. Congratulations to a team that many wrote off just a year ago. Our captain @siya_kolisi_the_bear took criticism from all sides but today, the Springboks are back on top of the world. Well done Bokke. You have made us all proud," 'The Daily Show' host wrote.
