Are the Stormers - who selflessly put themselves in harm’s way - in quarantine?
On Wednesday, Western Cape Premier Alan Winde announced going into self-isolation after testing positive for Covid-19.
On the Friday before that, Winde welcomed the Stormers Rugby team to the Brackengate field hospital, where they helped to move beds at the 338-bed site.
Winde was masked and didn't interact with any particular player in close contact for more than 15 minutes.
Lester Kiewit interviewed senior sports reporter John Goliath about persistent, yet unconfirmed, rumours that Cape Town’s premier rugby team are in quarantine.

The work that Springboks and Stormers captain Siya Kolisi and his wife are doing – it’s incredible! He’s been up and down the N2 between Port Elizabeth and Cape Town, feeding the homeless… and people who live in abject poverty… that work will have to stand still for the next 14 days… It’s fantastic that they do it, but there’s a risk involved.John Goliath, senior sports reporter - IOL
