South African fans were given a treat as the Springboks beat Scotland 30-15 in a stellar second half; one fan got his cozzie signed by Siya Kolisi after the game, and the video is going viral.


Scotland, United Kingdom (15 November 2021) – The Springboks put on a show in Edinburgh when they went head to head against Scotland’s top rugby team. From Mapimpi’s try’s to the teams epic second half come-back, the game was filled with excitement.

Once the game was over, the fans got to engage with the boks. A group of South African fans flagged down captain Siya Kolisi, and when he saw a guy practically naked on the chilly Scottish evening, he had to run over. When he arrived, he saw the fan wearing a South African flag cozzie. The fan asked if Siya would sign his cozzie, and he obliged.

The fun moment was caught on camera by the fans in the stand and the film crew down below.

For those looking for a new slang word from South Africa, “cozzie” means swimming costume. Scroll to the final frame to see Siya signing a South African fan’s South African flag cozzie.

Not only did Siya sign the chilly South African fan’s cozzie, but he also gifted his game shirt to Gerard Butler, who had his birthday the day before their game.

The team will take on team England this coming weekend before heading home for the year to spend Christmas with their families. We look forward to watching our golden boys shine no matter what they encounter. Go Bokke!
