Cape Town – It was a proud day for South African rugby when the Springboks came out victorious at Twickenham over the weekend, beating England 27-13, and WAGS Rachel Kolisi and Holly Clare Nichol shared in the festivities, taking to social media to congratulate their partners.
Kurt-Lee Arendse and Eben Etzebeth crossed the line with Damian Willemse kicking two drop goals and Faf de Klerk contributed with penalty conversions to help the Springbok gain victory on English soil despite being a man down for the final 20 minutes.
Rachel Kolisi took to her Instagram stories, as reported by The South African, to congratulate her husband on the victory.
“Proud of you @siyakolisi you’ve been immense. Two more weeks,” she wrote.
Rachel and Siya are adored by South Africans. In October, the pair took a trip to the City of love, Paris. The pair took some time off in the French capital, sharing their time in the city with their followers on Instagram. They were shopping, dining, and attended an event hosted by the French bi-weekly newspaper specializing in rugby, Midi Olympique at Barrière-Le Fouquet’s Paris hotel.
“@midi.olympique évent was just so special this year,” Siya said in the caption of a post.
Meanwhile, Willie Le Roux’s special love interest, Holly Clare Nichol took to Instagram to share the pride she felt about Willie’s part in the team’s victory.
“The MOST PROUD. So stoked I could be here with my favourites ♥️🇿🇦,” she wrote in an Instagram post.
Earlier this year, Holly took to Instagram to announce that the couple moved into their new home together after building it from scratch.
“Honey, we’re home,” she said.
“Over a year and a half later and we’ve finally moved into our home! Building a house from scratch is no easy feat but if you have the right person by your side and, an experienced team to put your ideas in place then you can really create something quite unique.
“I’ve been dreaming up this design in my head for years and it is truly everything I imagined and more. Feeling very blessed to have this special place to call home ♥️.”
