Siya Kolisi is officially back!
The Springbok captain, who has missed both Rugby Championship matches, will return to the pitch on Friday at Newlands (3pm kickoff), where he run out for Western Province in a must-win Currie Cup clash against the Pumas.
Kolisi has been battling to shake off a knee injury sustained in the 34-22 Super Rugby victory for the Stormers against the Highlanders in late May.
He was initially ruled out for about six weeks, which would’ve taken him up to mid-July.
But the 28-year-old loose forward was held back by Bok coach Rassie Erasmus for the Tests against the Wallabies at Ellis Park and the All Blacks in Wellington.
