With two Rugby World Cup wins under his belt, a loving and supportive wife plus two beautiful children — he is certainly “living the dream”.Unfortunately, it hasn’t always been this way for Siya who was raised single-handedly by his grandmother who often struggled to provide.

His childhood was marred by incidents of violence and crime and this left a stain in his young mind — something he carried with him until he met his now wife Rachel. Opening up to Dan Biggar in a Daily Mail article, Siya recalled struggling to communicate with Rachel in the early days of their marriage.

These days the couple are more in love than ever and continue to wow their South African fans with how well they compliment each other.Rachel has also been praised for sticking by Siya and helping him become the man he is today
