Six times Siya Kolisi‘s wife Rachel set Twitter on fire in 2019. 2019 was filled with many highs and lows for the Kolisi family…
For Rachel – wife to Springbok captain Siya – 2019 has been A LOT. Whilst she probably has many fond memories from this year – like lifting the Web Ellis trophy alongside her hubby at the Rugby World Cup finale – we’re pretty sure there are some moments she’d happily put behind her.
Take a look at the times she trended on social media…
Exposing ‘the other woman’
Rachel accused a Cape Town fitness instructor of sliding into her husband’s DMs. Not only did she name and shame her, she also posted a very revealing pic of the woman on her IG stories – a move many called out as revenge porn.
The woman later set the record straight about the incident, insisting Siya contacted her first!
That post from Rachel Kolisi: that’s how you end up sued for distributing revenge porn. That girl better stop. Her friends should warn her.

Warning to thirsty fans
Rachel has quite a reputation for her angry outbursts – especially when it comes to her husband’s female fans.
Instead of dealing with it privately, Rachel has made it a habit of taking to social media to warn other women not to mess with her property!
Many tweeps have called her out for being overly jealous and insecure.

Weight loss goals!
Apart from airing her dirty laundry, Rachel has had an amazing year when it comes to fitness and getting back her pre-baby body.
Rachel partnered with her personal trainer to bring us a ‘transformation guide’ called ‘Rise’.
We have to admit, she looks hella good!
When Siya met Zozi
Everything was going well until a very interesting clip popped up on the TL of Siya meeting Zozibini Tunzi at OR Tambo, after his return from the Rugby World Cup in Japan.
It may have been totally innocent, but some tweeps claimed there was a little flirtation and even chemistry going on between the two Xhosa stars.
Naturally, everybody wanted to know what Rachel was going to say about the friendly encounter!
This is how @Springboks skipper Siya Kolisi and coach Rassie Erasmus, were welcomed to the media room, and by some others including Miss SA, Zozibini Tunzi, at OR Tambo last night. I have never experienced something like it; the crowds were wild with excitement. @IOLsport #Champs pic.twitter.com/Hffnl1qdYx

Celebs defend Rachel
Rachel trended again after a handful of tweeps – particularly women – cyber-bullied her over her WAG status.
It was all too much for some stars who had enough of the debauchery.
A lot of Black Women being so unnecessarily mean towards Rachel Kolisi makes me cringe! Says a lot about us! Ga ke kwešiše why re le so! Gwa Swabiša! ?

Ugly! Ugly! Ugly! And then they’ll say “relax, it’s just a joke”, and it’s not. ?

A not-so-friendly reminder!
In case you think Rachel has lost her touch when it comes to clapbacks, think again! She gave a sports presenter one for the road when he gave her a very back-handed compliment
In an Instagram post, Rachel revealed she and Siya were bumped up to first-class for a trip abroad.
The sports presenter quipped: “It’s called being the wife of a World Cup-winning captain”. To which Rachel shot back: “Luckily they won right! Pretty sure I remember you saying on air it would be my fault if we lost.”
