South Africa’s two-time Rugby World Cup-winning captain Siya Kolisi has given a response on whether he is still considering retiring after this year’s tournament.

The inspirational captain previously hinted that he could hang up his Test boots after the tournament in France, stating as much in his autobiography ‘RISE’.

However, it now looks like he could be set to continue his legendary Springbok career in 2024.

“Do not expect an immediate announcement from Siya ” he has a lot to consider,” his associate told AFP, who spoke on condition of anonymity.

“Let him and his team enjoy themselves first. What they have achieved is beyond amazing. Siya Kolisi is a national treasure. He must be the most popular person in South Africa right now.”

Journalist Illtud Dafydd posed the question to the Springbok captain at the World Rugby Awards on Sunday evening, however, and got a more positive answer from the man himself.

“Hopefully, if I get chosen, I’m not going to stop,” Kolisi said, clearly eager to see the good times continue.

The Bok captain and his teammates return to South Africa on Tuesday, where they will begin celebrations with a victory parade displaying the trophy around the country.

After which, Kolisi will head back to France to link up with Parisian Top 14 club Racing 92.
