Published on

Springboks captain and two-time world champion South African third-stringer Zia Kolisi has returned to the 39-man group called by coach Rassie Erasmus on Tuesday for the upcoming two Test matches against Ireland.

Kolisi, who joined Racing 92 (Top 14) after leading his team to a second consecutive world title, did not feature in the Springboks' win over New Zealand (12-11) in London on Saturday at the Stade de France last October 28. Against Wales (41-13).
