When it comes to celebrating their heroes, nobody does it quite like KwaZulu-Natal. In the 031, we party hard!

Saturday's Springbok Rugby World Cup Trophy Tour was nothing short of a spectacular, joyous carnival that had the entire province dancing in the streets. 

The Springboks, fresh off their World Cup triumph, paraded the coveted trophy through the vibrant streets of KZN, and what a sight it was! The city was flooded with a sea of green and gold as passionate fans cheered, sang, and danced in the true spirit of South African unity.

While residents flocked to the streets to bask in a triumphant win for our nation, Darren Maule and Carmen Reddy were at the frontline of the celebrations.

Take a look at the raucous celebrations captured by our very own presenters, as well as fellow Durbanites:

Adding to the excitement, two familiar voices, Darren Maule and Carmen Reddy, hopped on a bus to join in on the fun. TUNE IN at 06:00 today to hear the exclusive scoop from our radio jocks. 


Whilst we hope that the Springboks might make it a hat-trick in 2027, nothing is guaranteed. So, this is a rare and unique opportunity to show our team how proud we are of them.

The Boks may not have been able to visit every nook and cranny in our nation, but this day was one to remember. It showcased the power sport has to unite people and uplift spirits, and the best part is, it doesn't have to end here...

Let us all embrace this era of hope, celebration, and unity in South Africa!
