South Africa Rugby investigating after player dies at illegal tournament

South Africa Rugby investigating after player dies at illegal tournament

South Africa Rugby has launched an investigation after a player died at a tournament – despite the amateur game still being suspended in the country because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Amateur rugby is not permitted in South Africa for the remainder of 2020.

“This is a tragic incident that should never have happened,” said Mark Alexander, president of SA Rugby.

“Our hearts go out to the family, friends and team-mates of Vizicelo.

“Unfortunately, this goes directly against our Covid-19 guidelines around return to training, as all amateur rugby matches have been suspended for the year due to the pandemic, and all our unions, clubs and other bodies know this.
