Rugby: missing for three weeks, Springbok Nkosi reappears at his father's home


South African rugby player Sibusiso Nkosi, who had not given any sign of life since November 11, was found at his father's house near Pre

Relief after worry.

South African winger Sibusiso Nkosi, world champion with the Springboks, has reappeared at his father's home after being missing for three weeks, an official from his Pretoria club, the Bulls, told AFP on Monday.

According to a club statement, released a little later, Nkosi, 26, spoke to Bulls chief executive Edgar Rathbone at Emalahleni, east of Pretoria.

"Sibusiso was safe, uninjured and able to speak to Edgar," the statement said.

A police investigation was launched this weekend to try to find him.

"Edgar spent time alone with Sibusiso to understand how the club could provide him with the support he needs, and what kind of support," added the text of the Bulls.

We are happy to confirm that Sbu Nkosi has been found safe and sound.

The Vodacom Bulls, along with SSG, located Sbu and CEO, Edgar Rathbone, spoke with him in person.

No explanation

No explanation has yet been given for what may have triggered the disappearance of Nkosi, who was sent back to South Africa during a Bulls tour of Europe in October when he suffered a rib injury and was unable to play in Ireland.

Nkosi had the last of his 16 caps with the Springboks in 2021. He is no longer a starter on the right wing for the Bulls, the coach choosing Kurt-Lee Arendse or Canan Moodie instead when Cheslin Kolbe is injured.

A press conference for his club, which is to host Lyon this Friday for the first day of the Champions Cup, is scheduled for Tuesday.
