South Africa at the World Cup
South Africa has participated in seven Rugby World Cups, every one since their first appearance in 1995. South Africa has also hosted the World Cup once, in 1995. They have won the tournament three times - they won the event on home soil in 1995 and won again in France 2007 and Japan in 2019.
- South Africa did not compete in 1987 and 1991 because of an international sporting boycott due to the country's apartheid regime.
