The Springboks have been forced to suspend training after Lood de Jager tested positive for Covid-19.
De Jager, 28, who plays for Sale Sharks at club level, was dealt the bad news following a round of scheduled testing on Monday, with the opening Test against the British and Irish Lions taking place in just under three weeks’ time.
As the lock forward had been in close contact with several other members of Jacques Nienaber’s playing squad, the entire group has now had to go into preventative isolation.
More updates are expected in due course once the Medical Advisory Group carry out a review of the testing data.
More to follow.
