Many South Africans can remember exactly where they were back in 1995 when Francois Pienaar and Madiba celebrated winning the Rugby World Cup in front of thousands of fans at Ellis Park.
The Bok class of 2007 repeated this feat by taking out England in the World Cup in France. John Smit and his team swept all before them and once again sport demonstrated how it can unify a country as everyone celebrated their victory.
The 2015 Rugby World Cup kicks off on Friday with England taking on Fiji in what could be an enthralling encounter.
A key player in the game will be gigantic winger Nemani Nadolo, who had a great Super 15 campaign with the Crusaders.
Fiji will play a physical game and will be a good test for an English team desperate to play well on home soil.
E Street Cafe, situated in Fountains Mall will be the place to watch the Rugby World Cup this year.
