Sam Cane (All Blacks captain, sent off in the first half) on Sky Sports, after the defeat against South Africa 12-11 in the 2023 World Cup final:
“We are of course extremely disappointed. Especially since the guys had to play with 14 players for 50 minutes. All the players were warriors. It's hard. I mean well played South Africa, twice in a row... They had a very difficult journey to the final and they found a way to win each time. Well done."
