The British and Irish squad had a further round of Covid tests this morning and returned negative results, which meant that they can fulfil the contingency fixture at Loftus Versfeld in Pretoria. 

The Lions were supposed to be facing the Bulls, but that match was called off due to an outbreak in the hosts' camp, so the Sharks are stepping up to play again, just three days after being thrashed 54-7 by Warren Gatland's talented team at Ellis Park.
