Leinster players denied entry to South Africa

Leinster Rugby has travelled to South Africa for the first time to face off against the Kings and the Cheetahs in the PRO14, but there’s been a major issue.

The rushed nature of the tournament revamp has seen its first major logistical hiccup today as two Leinster stars, Isa Nacewa and Jamison Gibson-Park have been denied access to South Africa.

A statement read:

“Leinster Rugby can confirm that two members of the touring squad to South Africa, Isa Nacewa and Jamison Gibson-Park, encountered visa issues this morning upon arrival in Johannesburg.

“As this process is still ongoing, Leinster Rugby will be making no further statement.”
