Siya Kolisi Opens Up On Why He Decided To Leave Durban


Springbok Captain Siya Kolisi said that his family played a big role in his decision to move to Racing 92 in a statement issued by Kolisi.

"Rachel and the kids have sacrificed so much throughout my career, and I am immeasurably grateful for this. The move to Racing 92 will enable me to spend more time with my family, which is something that I have longed for, and this prospect certainly played a significant part in my decision-making"

Siya Kolisi also thanked the Cell C Sharks for enabling him to take up this new challenge from the 2023-24 season onwards.

“It has been an incredible collaborative effort between The Sharks and Racing 92 that has enabled me to start a new chapter in my career after the 2023 World Cup. I want to give a massive thanks to the Cell C Sharks for welcoming me with open arms in 2021, and for making me feel so at home in Durban, while their support over the last couple of years has been hugely influential during a key period in my career."

"I am immensely appreciative that the Sharks have given me their blessing to make this move, and it goes without saying that I will continue to give my all for the team over the next few months.”
