Cheslin Kolbe: Road to Glroy

Jeremy Daniel

Cheslin roared with happiness as the final whistle blew on the field in Japan. They were champions! Later, as his captain lifted the 2019 Rugby World Cup trophy into the air, he had never felt prouder of himself, his team and his country.

Cheslin Kolbe tells the story of a kid from Kraaifontein, Cape Town, whose talent took him to international sports stardom, first to Toulouse France, and eventually to getting the call-up that would change his life forever: to play for the Springbok 2019 World Cup XV. It’s a heartwarming story of a small player with a big heart whose signature side-step helped the Springboks win the World Cup trophy for South Africa.

Cheslin Kolbe is the eighth book in the bestselling ‘Road to Glory’ series, which covers some of South Africa’s sporting legends as they set out on their journeys to becoming national and international stars.
