Siya Kolisi: ‘It’s a privilege, not a burden, to fight for South Africa’

“THE JOURNALIST “… REVEALING AND INTERESTING "INTERVIEWS"

Kolisi

It’s been a sleep-sapping few days for South Africa’s World Cup-winning captain Siya Kolisi.

The Springbok skipper admits the aftermath of Saturday’s 32-12 victory over England in Yokohama has been frantic, but he knows he has to summon energy as the team returns home.

Hi Ari

Thanks for the follow(s) * (+ likes), as the reason I write is to share.
* (Though my family and close friends say it would be far more entertaining with a video-camera # in “real life”, rather than in cyberspace!)

# By the way, do they still make them in today’s ever-faster changing world..or is it all done with mobile phones?

(get with the times now,”luddite”* c – it should be a smart phone)

* or so I was often called by my “my techno-geek” friend, Bill (“the gonk”)

“total non-techno” c (who doesn’t possess a mobile phone, after a rather eventful’ experience some years back, whilst trying to walk, talk and chew gum at the same time)

Who says men can’t multi-task!

Kind regards and all the best with your blog

“early bird” (very) * craig

Best wishes from the First City to see the sun (in summer) …and we’re also the first to see the sunset and the stars (in winter-time)

“I will love the light for it shows me the way, yet I will endure the darkness because it shows me the stars.”

Inspiration

Beautiful words by Will Roger. Appreciated❤️

Not only reading is the good and final way to get settle, but get in touch and create a small distance with smart and good people around, is much needed.

Happy Saturday Night.
