In an interview with French media outlet Midi Olympique, Racing 92 owner Jacky Lorenzetti raved about having Siya Kolisi playing for his club.

“Siya Kolisi arrives at the club this Monday and Trevor Nyakane will not be long. There will be a positive impact on the group, I think,” he told Midi Olympique.

“Siya, he radiates. He’s someone quite extraordinary. He gives me the impression of being a tractor that will pull the whole team behind him.

“Siya Kolisi reminds me of Dan Carter but in a different style, certainly with a little more flesh, a little more human… They say he has political ambitions after rugby and that doesn’t surprise me from what I know about the guy.

“He is more unifying than anyone and even created an association a few years ago to help children in the townships in South Africa.

“In my youth, I did a bit of motorsport and I loved a driver named Ayrton Senna; he was a driving genius but he also had a mystical dimension that I found in Siya Kolisi.”
