The Emirates Lions arrived back from New Zealand on Sunday evening and have all gone into self-isolation for 14 days. The rest of the team management arrive back on Monday evening (16 March) and will also be in self-isolation (14 days).

 

Please note that our Supersport Challenge team have not been travelling abroad and will continue with their full training programme at Johannesburg Stadium while being monitored on a daily basis by the medical team. So don’t be alarmed if you see photos of them on their social pages training in gyms etc.

 

The welfare and safety of our players and the public is our first priority and we will abide with the relative governing bodies and authorities.

 

‘It is difficult circumstances but people’s health come first. Sanzaar is in ongoing discussions with broadcasters and have been keeping everyone informed of the decisions. The situation will be reviewed on an on-going basis,” said Rudolf Straeuli, CEO of the Lions Rugby Company.

 

The directive for self-isolation comes from the National Institute of Communicable Diseases: "Self-isolation is recommended if you have been exposed but not yet sick. If you are not sick after 14 days, you probably won't get sick." – Prof Cheryl Cohen, National Institute for Communicable diseases.

 

Injury Report:

Manuel Rass: Ankle syndesmosis sprain – will go for a MRI scan

Hacjivah Dayimani: Knee grade 2 MCL tear – will go for a sonar

Ek sien in vanoggend se koerant die CEO voel die spelers kamp en groep is nog baie positief en al daar is daar baie werk kom daar n paar beseerdes terug en sal dit en die feit om weer by die huis te speel baie goeie uitwerking op die span se performances he. So ek dink nie ons gaan baie veranderinge sien nie, die mense in bestuursposisies is nog nie in crises mode nie...

Dit klink of daar in elk geval ten minste vir die volgende 5 weke geen rugby gespeel gaan word nie.

Ek is nog steeds van mening dat indien ons execution beter is, ons baie beter sal vaar. Ek dink die management moet eerder gaan kyk hoekom ons execution swak is (mis tackles, omkeer besit, swak skoppe in die opponente se keelgatte af), en dit aanspreek, bv hoekom verloor ons so baie balle op die aanval, probeer die baldraer dalk te ver hardloop met die bal, hardloop die ondersteunende spelers die regte lyne, ens? 
Op verdediging moet die vraag wees, hoekom mis ons spelers so baie tackles? Elke keer in die eerste 30 minute verdedig ons relatief goed, net om later shape te verloor. Begin ons spelers konsentrasie verloor wanneer hulle moeg raak? - Rush defense is een van die moeilikste defensive systems om reg te kry, maar wanneer jy dit regkry, kan dit dodelik wees.
Confidence speel ook n groot rol hier, en n tekort aan ervaring maak dit baie moeilik om die ding om te draai.
Ek dink ook dat Cash n groot fout gemaak het om nie meer pre season games te speel nie, veral omdat ons verdediging sisteem totaal verander het. Nou het hulle tyd om alles behoorlik deur te gaan, en te werk aan die foute.

Dan moet ek ook byvoeg dat ons besluitnemeing op die veld ook nie baie goed was nie.
