We reported it at the time, but few people knew just how perilously close Springbok captain Siya Kolisi was to being ruled out of the World Cup.

And his recovery was a minor medical miracle.

While Chasing the Sun 2’s Episode 3 covered the recovery in a short span of time, in this exclusive clip hear Siya talk about just what happened when he was injured, and the way his recovery went in his own words.

The Bok captain was vitally important to the cause and the defence of the World Cup and management gave him as much leeway as physically possible.

But time was always against him.

And as Siya himself points out, it was really a miracle he came back the way he did.
