South Africa’s first black rugby head inspires destitute players

Despite appointment of South Africa’s first black rugby captain conditions for young players still far from ideal.

South Africa‘s title win at the 2019 Rugby World Cup was not just a sporting success story.

For the first time, the trophy was lifted by a black captain, Siya Kolisi, who fought his way from humble beginnings to lead his country to rugby’s biggest prize.

Al Jazeera’s Fahmida Miller reports from Kolisi’s home town Zwide in the Eastern Cape province where there are few resources for young players.
