South Africa are saying they're in no position to contest the Rugby Championship for at least the first three rounds due to lack of game time because of Covid19.

What?

What on Earth are they smoking?

I thought it would be interesting to see how many tier 2 and 3 players were in the 7 Super Rugby Unlocked squads.

Cheetahs 3: Aranos Coetzee (prop, Namibia); Louis van der Westhuizen (hooker, Namibia); Ruben de Haas (scrum half, USA).
Lions 2: Tiaan Swanepoel (fly half, Namibia); Divan Rossouw (full back, Namibia).
Pumas 2: Darrien Landsberg (lock, Zimbabwe); Tapiwa Mafura (full back, Zimbabwe).
Sharks 1: Madosh Tambwe (wing, DR Congo).
Stormers 1: Michal Haznar (centre, Namibia)
Bulls 0
Griquas 0

It seems South Africa was forced to renounce to the Championship. With them, they are eight nations between the top 24 not competing in any test this autumn: South Africa, Japan, Samoa, Tonga, Usa, Canada, Namibia, Hong Kong

One of the two brothers of Max Brito, Fabrice, is the coach of Ivory Coast 7s (men's team? women's team? both? I don't know).
Seeing the photos and the caption I thought he could be the son of Max, but according to wikipedia Max Brito has a brother called Fabrice so I assume the one in the photos is him
