Springbok captain Siya Kolisi, not one to miss out on a chance to break into song, joined the Gwijo Squad outside the team hotel in Johannesburg on Thursday night in a singalong welcoming hooker Joseph Dweba.

Dweba was named to start at hooker in what will be his third Test after Bongi Mbonambi suffered an injury in training ahead of the second Rugby Championship clash against the All Blacks at Ellis Park on Saturday (17:05). 

Malcolm Marx remains on the bench despite his man-of-the-match performance last weekend.

Kolisi has often joined the Springbok supporters who are famous for singing traditional isiXhosa songs and chants before and after games. 

The Gwijo Squad travelled to Mbombela last weekend for the first time post-Covid to witness South Africa beat New Zealand at home for the first time in eight years.
