South African Super Rugby player Steven Kitshoff became self-isolated after coming in contact with a person who tested positive for COVID-19.
He was part of the Springboks squad that won the 2019 Rugby World Cup in Japan last November.
He Ս Stormers’ first-line striker Scarra Ntubeni went into self-isolation after being contacted by a person who tested positive for COVID-19.
The Storms are out of action at the Pumas Championships on Friday, signalling the return of competitive rugby to the country this month after being halted in mid-March due to a coronavirus.
At the same time, the “Lions” in Johannesburg reported that four members of the squad had a positive result, excluding their home clash at the main Cheetahs table on Saturday.
The names of the four injured players were not mentioned, but the statement said that they were not asymptomatic, adding that the rest of the team will be reviewed before the test, before the game in Ellis Park.
“The Shooters”, “Griquas” և “Sharks” are the other parties playing behind closed doors in “Super Rugby Unlocked”, a one-stage competition, which will be determined by the placement of logs.
