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.”
