SA Rugby said on Wednesday it would monitor the rehabilitation of Springbok captain, Siya Kolisi, following surgery on an injury suffered to his right knee in a recent Vodacom United Rugby Championship match.

Kolisi underwent the operation on Friday and Springbok team doctor Jerome Mampane and his medical team will continue to monitor his recovery and rehabilitation. Mampane said it was too early to make any reliable forecasts on when Kolisi may be able to return to play.

Springbok coach Jacques Nienaber said: “We wish Siya well during his recovery and we know that he will do everything possible to return to play soon as possible.”
