SA will get some money from hosting the lions and TV revenue etc, but they will miss out on all the money spent by 10 to 20 thousand travelling fans who usually follow the lions.  This is money that a lot is SA businesses were banking on and the local economies really rely on.
By the way, does anyone know what the Lions team coaches (as in posh buses) were doing in PYS on Friday.
What makes you believe things will be better in 2022?
The Pandemic is still to reach its peak in most countries of the world.
Vaccines are doing a great job for us in the UK but there is a vast amount of catching up to do worldwide.  We don't know how long the vaccine will protect us for and whether it will perform against the new varients coming down the track. We already know that it's less effective against the Indian varient. 
Just keeping my feet on the ground for the foreseeable.

Keep the faith
