A biography of Siya Kolisi, the first black Springbok captain. Born in 1991 in Zwide, a township outside Port Elizabeth, he was raised by his grandmother. Passionate about rugby, he played for the African Bombers Club until he was offered a rugby scholarship to Grey High School. He went on to play for Western Province and the Stormers and was selected as the Stormers captain in February 2017, and as the captain of the Springboks in May 2018. This updated edition includes all the games at the Rugby World Cup in Japan in 2019 and the victory tour around South Africa when the team brought home the cup.
