Nkosi made is an established Springbok
It then, wouldn’t take long for Nkosi to make yet another step up, as he was named in a Springbok squad for the first time in 2018. He would subsequently make his debut against England, making an instant impact in the green and gold after a brave leap of faith from SA director of rugby Rassie Erasmus.
Injuries would then unfortunately see Nkosi lose what had now become his number 14 jersey, to Cheslin Kolbe. Kolbe would then go into the world cup as the first choice in that position with the burly winger having to bide his time. Luckily for Nkosi, however, he hasn’t had to face the same predicament at the Sharks, as a part from injuries, he has found himself keeping his spot on the Durban-based side’s right wing.
He is yet to sign a contract extension at the Sharks
That could potentially change, however, as Nkosi is yet to sign a new contract with the Sharks and as preciously reported by The South African News, CEO Eduard Coetzee has admitted that, as much as they want him to stay, he could be on his way out.
That prospect became an even bigger possibility ahead of the Sharks United Rugby Championship home loss to Edinburgh on Saturday evening. Quizzed on the continued absence of Nkosi, amid the rumours of him switching the Sharks for the Bulls, Everitt clarified that it was purely due to an ongoing injury.
