Springboks return to the training field


The Springboks will immediately resume their preparations for the forthcoming Tests against Georgia after feedback received from the Castle Lager Lions Series Medical Advisory Group.

Three players tested positive for COVID-19 on Sunday following real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests on arrival at the team hotel in Johannesburg, however, Herschel Jantjies (scrumhalf) has subsequently been cleared and can return to training.

In light of this, the strict precautionary measures taken by the team and the effective isolation protocols since the squad assembled, the Springboks can resume their training programme from Monday afternoon.

The Bok team to face Georgia in the first of two Test matches, at Loftus Versfeld on Friday, will be announced on Tuesday. The second Test is scheduled for Emirates Airline Park next week Friday, 9 July.
