410512Springbok rugby skipper and family man shares what he loves about his Land Rover Discovery.

As a Land Rover ambassador for the past five years, Siya Kolisi has had access to some of the finest SUVs available, but the Springbok captain’s latest seven-seat Discovery is his firm favourite. 

When Siya exchanged his childhood dream car – a Range Rover Sport – for a 3.0-litre diesel Discovery earlier this year the rugby flank admittedly thought the swop to be a downgrade. But having lived with the SUV for a year, the trade ended up being a blessing in disguise for Kolisi. 

“I’m a family man now,” says Siya. “Where I once preferred the sexy image and hardcore performance of the Range Rover, I now find myself appreciative of things like space and convenience. My wife Rachel, my kids and I spend a lot of time on the road and the Discovery is built for lifestyles exactly like ours.”
