It may have been an overcast start but that didn't stop hundreds of Springbok fans who lined the streets in Umhlanga, north of Durban, where the national rugby team started their victory tour on Friday.

A large number of fans gathered outside the Garden Court Hotel to welcome the team to the city.

The team will show off the Webb Ellis Trophy from Umhlanga through KwaMashu to the Durban City Hall, where Durban mayor Mxolisi Kaunda and KwaZulu-Natal premier Sihle Zikalala will meet them. The parade will head towards the beachfront and end at the Moses Mabhida stadium.

9am, uMhlanga

9.30am - KwaMashu station
