Springbok captain and Rugby World Cup winner Siya Kolisi is a passionate Liverpool supporter, having been drawn to the club by Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard during his childhood.
As an accomplished sportsman himself, he led his nation to World Cup glory during 2019’s edition of the Rugby World Cup in Japan, beating England on the day to lift the Webb Ellis trophy (World cup trophy).
Seeing as the Rugby World Cup is currently underway in France, we decided to look at the ten best times Siya Kolisi was spotted donning the storied red shirt of Liverpool FC.
Siya Kolisi with his wife, Rachel Kolisi. The pair have been married since 2016 and truly embody the spirit of South Africa’s slogan, a rainbow nation. The couple have two children together and have also adopted two children to form part of their family.
