Four South African national team rugby players, as well as four Georgia players, in addition to six members of the latter's staff have tested positive for covid-19. The information was released by the South African Rugby Union in a statement on Wednesday.
On the Springboks side, the four players involved are: Marvin Orie, Frans Steyn, Hande Pollard and Frans Malherbe. These cases are in addition to those detected earlier this week. This is a complicated situation, which puts into question the match between the two nations, scheduled for Friday 9 July. A final decision is expected tomorrow, Thursday 8 July.
