He hasn’t even trained with anyone at the club yet, just done individual training in the gym because his COVId results haven’t gone back.

Could be quite a while yet then if he is waiting for a test result.

Not if they went private

That’s same day and £180!

Tigers conduct regular testing of players either once or twice a week through a private venture organised by Prem Rugby, which costs £80 a head.

Therefore I don’t think van Wyk will be the victim of the current public testing backlog.

I've just noticed that Kobus is not showing on the squad list profile page. Others all seem to be there, including Shalva Mamukashvili. Must just be awaiting an update.

Neither are Wiese or Moroni. I believe van Wyk was signed from the 2020/21 season like them but has been able to arrive earlier.

His wife is due in a couple of months so there may have been family reasons rather that rugby ones making them want to get over and settled in their new home and health care whilst still possible. Were a second wave and lockdown to hit with them still in NZ then there would be a tough decision to make with a newborn on the way.

He isn't registered for Challenge Cup games so at most he could feature against Bristol and/or Quins if his covid test is negative.

With Murimurivalu having debuted, Steward looking a first XV player and Potter/Williams performing well I'd be happy enough with van Wyk being given until the start of next season to settle to be honest.

Van Wyk was signed for this season I believe whereas Wiese and Moroni are for next, think I've read GM mention that Van Wyk will feature before the end of this season.
