Springbok Captain Siya Kolisi delighted fans, including loyal South African expats, who made their way to Edinburgh for the weekend to witness South Africa beat Scotland 30-15. (Read the full article here.)
Siya picked up mobile phones to take selfies with the fans, many decked out in their SA rugby fans’ gear, and proudly holding the South African flag.

One of Kolisi’s biggest hugs however was reserved for Scotland’s international rugby player, Oliver Ralph Kebble… a South African expat who, like Kolisi, previously played for the Stormers and the Western Cape in provincial rugby. The 29-year-old, who was born in Durban, now plays for Glasgow Warriors, since 2017.
And while we’re sharing photos from the Murrayfield Stadium in Edinburgh, this has to be the coolest of the day… Makazole Mapimpi after his second try.
