JOHANNESBURG – Good news for Siya Kolisi and the Springboks is the national captain could be back on the field sooner than expected.
Kolisi has watched his Bok team-mates from the side of the field in the last few weeks as he slowly makes his return to full fitness following a knee injury.
While there is no set return date for the Bok skipper, coach Rassie Erasmus said yesterday Kolisi could be back in action in the next two weeks.
“Siya will stay with us until after Saturday’s Test and then go home and the good news is he could be back sooner than expected,” said Erasmus.
“He could run out for Western Province (in the Currie Cup) in two weeks’ time, and then we’d be confident to get him back for the last two Tests before we fly out to Japan.”
