Performance analyst Lindsay Weyer got the best seat in the house when he sat next to Springbok head coach Rassie Erasmus as SA's messiah led the Boks to their third Rugby World Cup title. They beat England 32-12 in the final in Japan on November 2.

LISTEN TO THE BRAINS BEHIND THE WIN:

No, we are not over the victory yet. And so we caught up with Weyer to find out how Erasmus put together the biggest World Cup heist in the game's history.

Weyer, who, along with Mzwandile Stick, was one of Erasmus's most trusted assistants, took us through the journey that started with the one-off Test against Wales in Washington in 2018.

He broke down the importance of the 2018 victory over the All Blacks in Wellington and how it was the foundation for the success achieved in Japan.
