Cape Town — Following the Springboks’ historic win in the Rugby World Cup final, Rachel Kolisi and her two children — Nicholas (9) and Keziah (6) — made their way back to South Africa.
Last week, Rachel revealed that she and the family would be returning to SA for a family wedding as her brother, Joel Smith, is getting married to South African Olympic champion, Tatjana Schoenmaker.
“In 8 days we’re on a plane home 🇿🇦 for a family wedding and we can’t wait! Thank you for all the kind messages, support, advise and recommendations ! I’ve read most of them and appreciate every single one! ❤️” she said at the time.

Rachel recently took to her Instagram stories and revealed that the family are now officially back in SA for the wedding. She uploaded two stories, one with herself and the kids on the plane, and another once they landed in Cape Town.
“Home time! Didn’t really shower, don’t really care,” she said in the one story.
“I wish I could explain how good it is to get home. I can’t wait for the rest of the team and families to experience this! South Africans are so happy and grateful for this victory. All that actually matters. Our people,” she wrote in the other.
There was no sign of Siya as he’s headed home on Tuesday morning before the Springboks embark on their victory tour throughout the country.
