Hendricks suffering from heart condition

Date published: February 11 2016

According to reports, Cornal Hendricks is being waylaid by a serious heart condition that could potentially end his career.

The Springbok backline player, who also features in the Sevens squad, was not released to play for the Stormers with Cheslin Kolbe and Juan de Jongh.

This prompted suspicion and the fact that he did not join the Stormers at the High Performance Centre in Cape Town earlier this week added fuel to the fire. 

While the Stormers and SARU have remained mum on Hendricks' condition, it is believed he will have to pass several tests from heart specialists before he will be allowed to play.
