SA Rugby has confirmed that the Springboks suspended training on Monday following a positive Covid-19 test in the squad ahead of Friday’s second Test against Georgia.
The players have been placed in preventative isolation prior to further PCR testing and a review of the testing data by the Medical Advisory Group (MAG).
Lood de Jager retuned a positive outcome in scheduled testing and, because of his close contact with a number of squad members, the entire group has gone into isolation.
SA Rugby said in a statement on Monday that an update will be issued following the review by the MAG and the further testing.
The Springboks had to suspend training last Monday and were without a few senior players in the first Test against Georgia due to Covid-19 protocols.
