Kolisi was raised in the Port Elizabeth community of Zwide, iBhayi. When Siya was born, Kolisi’s father, Fezakele, was in his final year of high school and his mother, Phakama, was 16 years old. When Kolisi was 15 years old, his mother passed away, leaving his deceased grandma Nolulamile to raise him. He made an impression on scouts at a youth competition in Mossel Bay when he was 12 years old, and as a result, Grey Junior in Port Elizabeth awarded him a scholarship. After that, he was given the chance to join Grey High School on a rugby scholarship. Mike Catt and South African cricketer Graeme Pollock also went there. Kolisi regularly participated in the first XV rugby squad. Prior to moving to the west to join Western Province, he played for the Eastern Province Kings young team from 2007 to 2009, competing in the Under-16 Grant Khomo Week and the Under-18 Craven Week. Additionally, he played for the SA Schools team’s national under-18 rugby union squad for two consecutive years. 
Career of Siya Kolisi
In the 2011 Vodacom Cup, Kolisi earned his Western Province senior debut against the Golden Lions. Later that year, a slew of injuries and international calls-ups afforded him the chance to make regular Currie Cup starts. During the season, he made 13 appearances and scored 4 tries, including a significant try against the Blue Bulls, a fierce rival.
Kolisi advanced to the Stormers team in 2012, and he had an immediate effect with 16 appearances and one try during the season. A thumb injury limited him to only one Currie Cup appearance in 2012, and he was forced to watch from the sidelines as Province won the competition. The second half of the year was not kind to him. The next year, Kolisi made a strong comeback and kept his spot in the Stormers lineup despite stiff competition among the loose forwards. He made a total of 13 appearances and 2 tries, which brought him his first international exposure. He only participated in Western Province’s final three Currie Cup games since he was a member of the Springbok lineup for the 2013 Rugby Championship. As a result, he was unable to save Western Province from falling to the Sharks 33-19 at home in the competition’s final.
On February 20, 2017, Kolisi was chosen as the Stormers’ new captain. On May 28, 2018, he was chosen to lead the Springboks as their new captain, making him the first black skipper in the team’s 126-year history. The selection of Kolisi was praised by mixed-race former Springbok Bryan Habana, who said: “It’s a monumental moment for South African rugby, and a moment in South African history.” Kolisi served on the board of directors for MyPlayers Rugby, the union for all South African professional rugby players. Following MVM Holidings’ successful acquisition of the Sharks’ majority shareholding in February 2021, Kolisi signed with the team.
