The Lions' preparations for Saturday's Super Rugby Unlocked encounter against the Cheetahs have been disrupted after four of their players tested positive for Covid-19.

The Johannesburg franchise said the players, who were not named, have been pulled out of the squad preparing for Saturday's match at Ellis Park.

A statement from the Lions read:

The men from Johannesburg are desperate for a win, having started their campaign with narrow losses to the Sharks in Durban (19-16) and Stormers in Cape Town (23-17).

The Lions team will be named on Thursday, with Saturday's clash at Ellis Park scheduled for 16:30.
