Bulls also say no to Hendricks


It seems like the immediate future of Springbok Cornal Hendricks will be put on hold after the Bulls confirmed on Wednesday that they will not be sighing Hendricks for this years Super Rugby competition.

There were high hopes that the springbok wing will be back on the field soon with the Bulls after early negotiations with Toulon failed.

According to the Bulls High Performance Manager, Xander Janse van Rensburg, the decision was taken by the Bulls in consultation with the Hendricks and the Bulls medical staff after they did a number of test.

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.

  1. No union’s medical or life insurance underwriter will accept the risk – so he should stop trying and make a career change. Of course, this is not so easy when you have no Plan B, or when you are not a natural, analytical communicator who can become a commentator (just ask Slapfield!). Good luck to the guy and his family – hopefully somebody can use his brand and give him a rep job, for him to start building something new? Come on SARU, help the guy!

    “or when you are not a natural, analytical communicator who can become a commentator”

    Haha you mean like Ashwin Willemse?

  3. This guy better then most wingers in country. If he signs a waiver and accepts the risks, why can’t he play?

    You mean like an indemnity form… “If I die on the field due to my heart condition, I take full responsibility…”

    You’re not serious… no insurance no play in the professional era full stop.

    Not to kick him whilst he’s down but other than experience and being a decent finisher… his passing was average, zero kicking game and constantly caught out on defence…
