Kolisi joins the franchise from the Stormers as a South African national icon, having led the Springboks to the top of the world rankings in 2019.

“We are delighted to welcome Siya and his family to the Cell C Sharks.  We pride ourselves on being a family unit who support and treat each other unbelievably well and a player of Siya’s pedigree is a welcomed addition to the team,” said Sharks CEO Dr Eduard Coetzee. 

“He is a class act and undoubtedly a great ambassador for the game and is someone whom our young players will certainly draw inspiration from. We are confident that Siya will fit in seamlessly into our team environment and will thrive with the unique culture that we have in Durban.”

Kolisi said he immediately bought into the vision of the The Sharks.

“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.”
