Springbok forced to isolate ahead of their clash with All Blacks

Due to the Covid-19 outbreak in Brisbane, Australia where South African, New Zealand, Argentinian, and Australian rugby teams are based, the organisers of the 2021 Rugby Championship have decided to put the teams into isolation.

The teams are allowed to have closed training sessions outside their hotels, but they are allowed to mix with the public.

The move comes after the Capital city of the state of Queensland recorded four new cases of Covid-19 on Tuesday, the first cases of the pandemic in two months, and where the source is unknown.

After last weekend's doubleheader in Townsville, and with New Zealand already confirmed as Champions after defeating the Boks 19 - 17, this weekend's games put the same teams together against each other again.

The Gold Coast will host the last fixture of this year's tournament, and Wallabies and Pumas will kick off the doubleheader clashes at 9h05 AM, followed by Springbok versus All Blacks for their 101st clash at 12h05 PM.
