It would take a miracle for Siya Kolisi to make it to the Rugby World Cup. This followed reports that the Springbok captain was injured and would require surgery to recuperate. The Zwide-born flanker from Gqeberha reportedly has a knee injury, according to a story published by IOL Sport at the start of this week.

It is believed that this could prevent him from playing rugby for a considerable amount of time. Kolisi suffered an injury last week against Munster in his final game for the Cell C Sharks as he prepared to leave for France, where he will play after the World Cup. According to sources, Kolisi has reportedly been examined by two medical professionals who have recommended that he have surgery.

Even Kolisi’s team, the Cell C Sharks, has acknowledged that he will be seen by a medical professional to determine the severity of the injury that may prevent him from defending the Rugby World Cup that the South African national rugby team won in 2019 in Japan. Kolisi will miss the World Cup if he has surgery since he might be out of play for several months.

His wife, Rachel Kolisi, expressed concern over the severity of the injury to the captain of the national rugby team on social media, however she did not provide any information. What makes Kolisi’s absence so significant?

Despite being 31 years old, he is still a key player of the Springboks because of how active he is throughout games. Without enough time to find a replacement, his absence could negatively affect the national team.

As he gears up for the Rugby Championship, which will hone the Springboks before the World Cup, Jacques Nienaber is compelled to pull the trigger once more. South Africa will play test matches against countries like Argentina, Wales, and New Zealand following the Rugby Championship. The Springboks’ World Cup opponents are Scotland, Ireland, Tonga, and Romania.
