The Springboks are back in the country and along with the entire nation, they are clearly still on a high after beating the All Blacks in France over the weekend.

As the only country to win the Rugby World Cup four times and to win it twice in a row, there is much to celebrate.

To celebrate the win, many of the team members have gotten tattoos of the Webb Ellis Cup and the winning years. Players include Siya Kolisi and RG Snyman.

But it’s fly-half Damian Willemse’s tattoo that has received the most attention.

For good reason! He had his inked on his butt cheek and wasn’t shy to show it off.

The 25-year-old fly-hald from Cape Town took to Instagram to show off his fresh tattoo.

The Instagram reel captioned: “For All The Dogs… 🖊️🍑🏆🇿🇦😂 #BackToBack” shows a close up of the tattoo on his butt before we get to see a Willemse beaming with excitement.

The video found it’s way onto X where people are not shy to speak their mind.

X user @sanelenkosix posted the video and it has already been viewed almost 6 million times.

Along with a picture of Willemse hugging the Webb Ellis Cup, she tweeted: “Damian Willemse just had the Rugby World Cup trophy tattooed on his bum.”

X user @_Nwai commented: “he knows what he is doing. the whole country is in a frenzy 😭”.

“None of my thoughts are in the bible,” said @JenSainty.

Obviously distracted by the video @arxhiiie said: “The way i struggled to focus reading this caption.”
