The Capetonians’ Springbok duo are in Nigeria and they’re getting up to all kinds of interesting things – rugby excluded!

Nigeria, still one of African soccer’s powerhouses, is not renowned for its rugby.

But courier giants DHL are hoping to spread the gospel a bit after sending two Stormers stalwarts, the Springbok flanker Siya Kolisi and hooker Scarra Ntubeni, on a trip to the continent’s most populous country.

DHL are the Capetonians’ title sponsor in Super Rugby.

To date, the two players haven’t been doing much rugby-related activities.

Instead, they’ve spent time at the Lekki Conservation Centre – which boasts the largest canopy walkway in Afrika at an immense 401m long! – eaten traditional Nigerian food and even bought traditional clothing!

Crunching tackles and line-out throws aren’t on the agenda just yet but Kolisi and Ntubeni have certainly made their presence felt.
