Springboks skipper Siya Kolisi has just dropped a cool image chilling with his teammates Makazole Mapimpi and Lukhayo Am. The picture has sparked some positive vibes within the sports and rugby fraternity.
The trio is currently contracted to the Cell C Sharks in Durban and looking at reactions, many feel the trio deserve legend status.
Sharks lose to Blue Bulls
Just looking at the previous results for the Durban-based franchise, the Sharks succumbed to a 34-22 loss at the hands of the Vodacom Blue Bulls last weekend.
Am and Kolisi were part of the squad that faced the Tshwane side on Saturday in their Pro14 Rainbow Cup clash that was staged at Kings Park Stadium. But Mapimpi was withdrawn from the team because of an injury.
The post on Instagram reads:
“Abantwana bomgquba @lukhanyo_12 @makazoli Yho bendilambile apha and bendinetshiki.”
South Africans react to the snap
“Amadoda akwa Xhosa... representing esi Sizwe.”
“Your captions budda.”
“Abantwana base Mpuma-Kapa.”
“So lovely to see you guys! Shampizi!”
“Legends. To have a beer with these guys – wow.”
“I know it’s random, but grew up in Queenstown, Queens 84 rugby team. Live in Dallas, TX now and we have a very quick rabbit who lives in our yard. Appropriately named Mapimpi!!!! What a class act.”
“Benifanelwe ngumphokoqo madoda namasi.”
Kolisi receives love from his wife Rachel
In a latest Instagram post, Rachel says she wishes everyone could know how humble Siya is on a personal level, labelling the bulky rugby player as a man with a beautiful heart.
Kolisi recently completed his switch from DHL Stormers and joined Cell C Sharks in Durban, a move that has received the backing of former Springboks coach Heyneke Meyer.
Meyer's sentiments also come on the back of the Durban franchise's decision to name the Port Elizabeth-born player their skipper.
Rachel Kolisi wrote on Instagram:
“I wish you all had the opportunity to know him personally. What a heart. What a man.”
