The Springbok injured his shoulder in playing in the off-season for NTT DoCoMo Red Hurricanes which he had contract insurance and upon his return to the Bulls he injured his knee in his first training session which will see him out of action for the rest of the season.
According to a report in Die Burger, Pollard needed to play for the Bulls, after returning from Japan, in order to be covered again by the injury insurance. This leaves Pollard in loosing millions in match fees and his contract with the Bulls for Super Rugby.
Pollard already had his operation on the knee he injured are busy with his recovery.
The Bulls will on start paying Pollard again when he returns to the field.
This should be a sound warning to players who go and play in the off-season in Japan….
