What a week we have had, South Africa!

Last week was full of celebration as the Springboks arrived home and went on their Trophy Tour through Gauteng, the Western Cape, KwaZulu-Natal, and finally the Eastern Cape.

South Africans brought their A-game as the celebrations were taken to the streets to cheer on our victorious boys in green and gold.

However, not everything went according to plan, with a few mishaps along the way.

Firstly, Rachel Kolisi was hit in the head by a rugby ball which a fan threw at Siya and the boys. This happened while on the Cape Town leg of the tour.

Poor Mrs Kolisi didn't even see it coming and must have got quite the fright when the ball collided with her head.

Check out various angles below:

While she has not posted about the incident, Rachel appeared to be just fine.

Guys, please be careful in future, that is one half of our Royal Couple!

Fan attacks Siya Kolisi!

Another crazy incident involving a member of the Kolisi family took place in East London on Sunday.

A fan got a little too excited and broke past security before jumping on Siya, seemingly looking for a hug and kiss.

See what happened below:

From other blurry footage, it appeared that the same fan managed to give Manie Libbock a kiss on the cheek.

Guys, boundaries...
