Louw made his Test debut in 2010 and went on to win 76 caps for South Africa. In all, he appeared in three Rugby World Cup tournaments.

"I couldn't have asked for a more fulfilling career with the Springboks and I bow out with a full heart", he said in a media release from South Africa Rugby.

It was notably less of a problem after the previous World Cup in 2015, for example, when only five of the 15 (one third) who began the narrowly-surrendered semi-final against New Zealand at Twickenham were not returning to SA franchise engagements immediately afterwards: Bryan Habana, Fourie du Preez, Duane Vermeulen, Francois Louw and Bismarck du Plessis.

Cape Town - Springbok coach Rassie Erasmus was ecstatic with captain Siya Kolisi's return to the green and gold against Argentina on Saturday. "It's been a long tour and the boys are exhausted but once you step on the bus and feel the energy from the people you just ready to go for another day".

Louw was born in Cape Town to a rugby family - his grandfather, Jan Pickard, was a Springbok and a former president of Western Province.

Kolisi gave the address from the balcony of the Durban City Hall where he stood with his team mates and several city officials, including eThekwini Municipality Mayor, Councillor Mxolisi Kaunda.

The Springbok captain echoed the same sentiment from during their trophy as he was very thankful to the fans for their support during the World Cup as well as when they returned home.

He said he wants to be able to inspire the young kid in the township, adding that with Kolisi and Makazole Mapimpi, who hails from a rural area of the Eastern Cape, "I want to say to him it is possible".

"I've made friends for life in the game and created incredible memories with great people".
