Springbok captain Siya Kolisi is always on the move. Whether leading victorious Rugby World Cup campaigns in Japan or attending grueling training camps to further hone his skills, the popular loose forward has little time for himself. When he does, however, the 28-year-old Land Rover ambassador often enjoys road tripping down to the coast with his family in his Discovery 3.0-litre diesel.

Hear from the players: 

"I love driving back to my hometown in Zwide, Port Elizabeth," says the skipper.

"It’s around eight and a half hours one way but the Discovery makes it feel like a pleasure cruise. That diesel engine makes for effortless overtaking and it is surprisingly light on fuel too. The roads to the Eastern Cape aren’t exactly in good shape, but I know Land Rovers thrive in tough conditions. My friend Kingsley Holgate has trekked to some of the most remote parts of Africa in a Discovery almost exactly like mine, so I know my family and I are safe when the going gets rough on the N2.”

Kolisi's Discovery also comes equipped with InControl Apps, a feature that enables you to use vehicle optimised smartphone Apps on the vehicle's touch screen. One of these Apps is the popular Spotify music streaming service, of which the Bok captain is a fan. In fact, Kolisi has his own Spotify playlist aptly named 'Kolisi’s Compilation.'

"Whether I’m alone in the car, at home with my family or on the field training, music is a huge part of my life. The tracks I chose for this playlist are very meaningful to me and I think it’s fantastic that I can connect with my fans through songs that inspire me. If anyone were to catch a lift in my Discovery right now, this playlist is exactly what I’m listening to.”

1: Highlands (Song of Ascent) [Live] -  Hillsong United
