With the national lockdown just hours away, the Springbok captain, Siya Kolisi, has sent a message out to the nation.

Sportsmen and women, in particular, will have different challenges with regards to fitness during the next 21-days as the country shuts down in order to combat the deadly Covid-19 pandemic.

Should things go as planned, domestic sport may be able to resume later in April, and it is up to the players to maintain their fitness.

Kolisi, who lifted the Webb Ellis Trophy in Japan last year, has urged South Africans to try and make a difference, even while in lockdown.

“The most important thing right now for us as a team is the health of the country, and what the people need, we must make sure we send the right messages and show how much this means to us by making sure we are staying within the rules.

“It is tough for everybody. If you can't do much, just stay at home because that is also supporting what the President has said.

“The whole world is asking for everyone to fight this thing. So do what you can as a person.”

SA Rugby is hoping to have domestic rugby up and running again by the end of next month.
