World champion Boks galore at Vodacom Super Hero Sunday


This weekend will mark Siya Kolisi’s first competitive match since the heroic World Cup final last November and expectations are that a massive crowd will accompany his return at Vodacom Super Hero Sunday at FNB Stadium.

By Thursday morning, ticket sales had pushed beyond 52 000, tantalisingly close to the 55 000-mark recorded in Cape Town last year.

The Springbok captain will lead the DHL Stormers in their 1pm fixture against the Cell C Sharks. He’ll lead a troop of Super Rugby title aspirants who include World Cup champions Steven Kitshoff, Herschel Jantjies and Damian Willemse.

Other World Cup players to feature on Sunday include Elton Jantjies (Emirates Lions), Warrick Gelant (Vodacom Bulls) and Lukhanyo Am, Makazole Mapimpi, Sbu Nkosi and Thomas du Toit (all Cell C Sharks).

Tickets (R60 apiece or four for R200) are still available at Computicket.

The matches will also be broadcast live on SuperSport 1.
