Hendricks not joining Bulls

Date published: March 15 2017

The Bulls on Wednesday confirmed that they will not add former Springbok wing Cornal Hendricks to their playing roster.

Hendricks trained with the Bulls in recent weeks in view of a possible Super Rugby contract.

According to the High Performance Manager, Xander Janse van Rensburg, the decision was taken in consultation with the player and the Bulls medical staff, following a number of tests in this regard.

Hendricks joined the Bulls after signing for the Stormers last year and Toulon before that but failed to play a game for either team due to his health. He came to stardom from featuring in the Springbok Sevens team before joining the Cheetahs in 2014. He has 12 caps for the Springboks.
