Toulon snap up Hendricks

Date published: December 8 2016

In a surprise move, Toulon have announced the signing of former Springbok wing Cornal Hendricks on a deal until the end of 2016/17.

The 28-year-old, who has run out for South Africa on 12 occasions, had to stop playing earlier in the year because of a serious heart condition.

But it appears he’s now able to make a return to rugby and the Top 14 side has moved for his services ahead of the Champions Cup weekend.
