Successful surgery for Pollard

Date published: February 11 2016

Vodacom Bulls fly-half Handré Pollard has undergone surgery to repair ruptured knee ligaments in his knee.

The Springbok playmaker has been ruled out of rugby for at least nine months following a freak training ground accident on Monday.

But the 21-year-old was all smiles after coming out of surgery on Wednesday with high hopes of returning to full fitness for the 2017 season.
