Springboks skipper Siya Kolisi’s wife, Rachel, has penned an emotional piece about her hubby. Rachel headed online to open up about her South African rugby star, saying it was heartbreaking to see the man of the house getting injured on the field of play.
Kolisi was in action for the reigning World Cup champions as they faced New Zealand last weekend but the stunning wife says it was not easy to watch the Cell C Sharks campaigner lying on the field and grimacing in pain.
In a lengthy post on Instagram, Kolisi’s wife cannot wait to see the father of her kids coming back home. She wrote:
“I don’t ever wish moments like this on anyone. When you see them go down like that, It’s so hard to put into words what it feels like, but scary and helpless are probably a good place to start. Especially when your kids are very aware of what’s going on too."
