It took just one emoji for Springbok captain Siya Kolisi's wife Rachel to bring the internet to a virtual standstill on Tuesday.

Rachel, who caused a Twitter storm earlier this year by telling women to back away from her man was back in the game blocking shots at her man like a basketball player.

This times she found a fan named Zuki who had taken snaps with Siya and called him "baby".

While most people would have kept scrolling and rolled their eyes, putting it down to a fan girl moment, Rachel stepped in.

Her response? This...

Fans debated the meaning of the emoji with some claiming that Rachel was commenting on the person's thirst for her hubby.

She also apparently went onto Instagram to post about the devil trying to break her but the post was later deleted. 

The internet was a mess in reaction with Rachel, Siya and the woman all trending at the same time.

And while there was a near civil war over whether Rachel was wrong or right, the defence force came to her rescue with memes and sermons.

Rachel confronted another woman on Twitterin July after she said she would make an exception to her policy of not dating married men for Kolisi and called him a "type".

"He’s not 'a type'. He’s a married man responsible for 4 children...Just a side note. I’ve been there for all the good times. But I’ve also been there for ALL the bad times. Honestly this should go without saying. Respect my relationship and woman to woman. Respect me," Rachel told the woman.
