Fourteen years ago, the then 13 year old Siya Kolisi was pictured getting an autograph from Schalk Burger. He later went on to play with Burger for Western Province, the Stormers and the Springboks.

Today, Burger, who has now retired from international rugby and current Bok captain Kolisi, were pictured with their families on a Cape Town beach. Kolisi’s wife, Rachel, posted the now famous autograph picture along with a picture of the two families taken today, and added the words “This is a pic of Siya asking Schalk for his autograph 14 years ago. The 2nd pic is from today. #LifeHey”

Burger, who won 86 caps for the Boks is a former IRB Player of the Year and played flank in the Rugby World Cup final in 2007 which South Africa won 15-6 against England. Kolisi was recently appointed as captain for the Springboks and subsequently beat England 2-1 in a home test series.
