Hendricks leaves Toulon

Date published: January 6 2017

Former South Africa wing Cornal Hendricks’ proposed move to Toulon will not go ahead, the Top 14 outfit announced on Friday.

28-year-old Hendricks, who has turned out 12 times for the Springboks, had to stop playing in 2016 because of a serious heart condition.

It was therefore a shock when Toulon announced in December last year that the wing would be joining them. However, following a series of medical and physical tests, which Hendricks passed, the club has announced that he won’t be wearing their jersey in the 2016/17 campaign.
