REPORT: Nkosi set to get a rugby lifeline in SA

NEWS: Former Bulls and Sharks wing Sibusiso Nkosi will reportedly get a rugby lifeline with a South African franchise.


According to RugbyPass, the Springbok wing is poised to make a comeback with the Cheetahs.

In the report, it says that he is due to start training with the Bloemfontein-based team this week with a view to putting pen to paper on a one-year contract to play in their Currie Cup campaign.

The 28-year-old’s off-field problems have been well documented and last year in June he reached a mutual agreement with the Bulls to terminate his contract.

Almost a month before his contract was terminated, Nkosi played a match for the World XV against the Barbarians at Twickenham and after that outing, he posted a message on social media which said: “It was reviving to my passion, to spend a mere week with men who are pure of heart.

“A break from being judged by men who are bigger in their minds than they are in reality.”

At the time, Bulls Director of Rugby Jake White was asked about Nkosi’s comments and he was frank in expressing his disappointment.


“I have children his age,” White said, adding: “I don’t think anyone wants to see someone go from a World Cup winner to not being guaranteed playing rugby.

“He’s a talented player.

“I’m very disappointed with what he wrote on social media.”
