The decision was taken as part of prescribed precautions advised by the National Institute for Communicable Diseases (NICD) to limit the risk of further infection in the rugby community.

The decision was triggered on Friday, following receipt of positive results from scheduled testing of the Lions squad.

As determined by the competition rules, the Stormers will be awarded four log points because of the cancellation.

“The Lions have followed all protocols and taken all the appropriate steps,” said Jurie Roux, SA Rugby CEO.

“While the cancellation is unfortunate, their approach ensures that the risk of cancellation of their match against the British & Irish Lions on July 3 is well managed.”
