The first black captain in Springboks history, Kolisi is a dynamic openside flanker with a power running game reminiscent of the great Michael Jones in his prime. 

Kolisi, Duane Vermeulen and Pieter-Steph du Toit form a dynamic loose-forward trio as good as any in Japan.

The 28-year-old made his Springboks debut in 2013 and when fit, has been an automatic pick for every test.
