Springbok captain Siya Kolisi is widely regarded as one of the most influential players in the international game.
A World Cup winning captain at the peak of his powers at the helm of one of Rugby’s most iconic brands, the pressure and adulation that comes with the role would be enough to break most men.
Despite his widespread fame, Kolisi has remained a humble figurehead that leads his side with class at all times.
It is not just outwardly that Kolisi is adored but it is clear that his teammates would go to the end of the world for him.
A moment in the England game highlighted just why he is so respected by his Springbok colleagues.
As the Boks continued to flex their muscles as they bowled past England with ease, Franco Mostert who was putting on a monumental performance cut open a gash above his eye.
Immediately spotting the blood pouring from his mate’s face, Kolisi began to wipe away the blood to ensure his mate could continue to push on.
This ladies and gentleman is another reminder that Siya Kolisi is a man who leads with his actions first.
1/2. SIYA AND FRANCO ❤️
