Kolisi explains his move to the Sharks

REACTION: Siya Kolisi said he was attracted to Durban by the Sharks’ vision of success.


The Durban franchise confirmed the signing of World Cup-winning Springbok captain on a multi-year deal on Wednesday.

In a statement, the Sharks said: “Kolisi’s ongoing strong appetite to win trophies and better himself on the field, matched with The Sharks strategic vision and defined blueprint for success, drove Kolisi’s motivation to expand his horizons within SA rugby, and embark on this exciting new chapter in Durban.”

Kolisi believes the move to Durban from Cape Town will bring out his best on the field,

“I bought into the vision of The Sharks immediately – the energy around the club, the management set-up, the squad and the potential for success was so strong.

“I have always had a desire to be the best, and play with the best, to reach my potential on-and-off the field, and this move is just another step in maximising what I can achieve within my career.

“This is a very exciting new chapter for me and my loved ones, and one I am embracing fully. I arrive with a commitment to give this team everything I have, and I’m thankful to The Sharks for the opportunity.


“We can’t wait to see what Durban has to offer.”
