Paarl Bok, genuine question.

The pandemic has affected all nations to a greater or lesser extent. Not being able to play international rugby, etc. I feel like SA has been through similar before with isolation in the 70s and 80s, yet they maintained domestic participation and have won 3 RWCs since. They have some experience with disruption.

What is the feeling in South Africa? When international play resumes, is there confidence domestic rugby will put the Springboks in a strong position when the world gets going again?

Nhleko confirmed the Toyota Cheetahs loose forward to lead them in matches against Uruguay, Argentina and Georgia, and called up Brandon Wilkie and Kian Meadon (both Cell C Sharks) to extend the squad to 30 players.

"George will lead the squad for this very significant series, while he will be assisted by Jordan Hendrikse and Sasko Ndlovu, the other two players in the leadership group, said Nhleko.

SA Rugby commended its 14 member unions for proactively halting all forms of club and amateur rugby in the wake of the current third wave of the COVID pandemic that has gripped South Africa.

...

SA Rugby advised that provincial competitions such as the Currie Cup (Premier and First Divisions), as well as the Women’s Premier and First Divisions, as well as the Under-20 International Series will continue, with strict adherence to all relevant protocols, and that changes to the schedule will be made if necessary.

Club and amateur rugby back
SARugby
SA Rugby announced on Tuesday that all amateur and club rugby, currently suspended across the country due to COVID regulations, will be permitted to resume on 2 August following detailed reviews by the various provincial unions and if teams have implemented the return to play safety guidelines.
According to Jurie Roux, CEO of SA Rugby, all the provincial unions will be allowed to decide on the best course of action in their own areas of jurisdiction, following the amended Level 3 lockdown regulations announced on Sunday night.
“All of this is subject to SA Rugby’s return to train and play guidelines, as well as any other regulations published in the Government Gazette,” said Roux.
“All amateur and club rugby had been put on hold until the end of the month, but the provinces will be allowed to move to a return-to-play should they deem it safe to do so, considering a review of the status of COVID in their regions.
“The national regulations relating to the national curfew will have to be adhered to, while no spectators will be allowed at matches.”
All amateur and club teams are encouraged to engage with their unions to establish what the safety protocols involve. Schools rugby falls under the jurisdiction of the Department of Basic Education and the season is still suspended.
