Siya Kolisi Pays Tribute To Springboks’ Remarkable Comeback Victory

Siya Kolisi paid tribute to the way the Springboks “chased lost causes” after a sensational comeback World Cup quarter-final victory over tournament hosts France on Sunday night.

Despite trailing 25-19 in the second half and losing enforcer Eben Etzebeth to a yellow card in the final play of the first half, the Springboks showed incredible character and determination to come from behind and secure a one-point win in hostile conditions in Paris.

Kolisi praised the team’s unity and resilience, stating, “We worked together as a team and we talked a lot about never giving up. We knew it would take something special and we did it today. France asked a lot of questions of us, but the character we showed stood out. I’m proud of the guys and the discipline they showed.”

The Springboks were well-prepared for the intense atmosphere at the Stade de France, where the home support jeered at any foul play from South Africa and booed Etzebeth upon his return to the field. Kolisi revealed that they used speakers in training to simulate the noise and atmosphere they would face.

Despite France dominating territory and possession, South Africa’s relentless defence kept the hosts tryless in the second half. Kolisi highlighted the team’s commitment to chasing lost causes, saying, “We talk about chasing lost causes as a group, we don’t give up until they put the ball down over the try line. We worked together as a team. If we hadn’t done that, we would be going home. We never give up. You can lose as a team, but as long as you don’t give up.”

The Springboks now face England in the highly anticipated second semi-final on Saturday night. With their remarkable comeback victory against France, the team is filled with confidence and determination to continue their winning streak.
