Despite the Stormers best efforts they were unable to keep Springbok captain Siya Kolisi. He has been linked to a move to the Sharks in KwaZulu-Natal.
The Stormers has been the only home Siya has known in his rugby career spanning 11 years. His contract was officially set to end in October 2021 but Siya was ready to move on.
His move to KZN has a lot to do with changes which have taken place with the Sharks. The KZN team sold a controlling stake in the franchise to Roc Nations Sport in January.
The president of Roc Nations Sport Michael York and Vincent Mai were the ones responsible for Kolisi getting his scholarship to attend Greys High School which helped him improve his rugby.
Roc Nation, the talent agency, signed Siya Kolisi to its label after the Boks won the World Cup, the agency is owned by US rapper Jay Z.
The Stormers revealed that despite trying everything to resign Kolisi, he opted to be released early from his contract after the Sharks offered an acceptable transfer fee.
