The Blue Bulls have announce that winger Cornal Hendricks has re-signed with the side committing his immediate future to the franchise.
The 32-year-old Springbok wing won over rugby lovers around the country with his intense energy on the field and his strong finishing skills.
Jake White, director of rugby at the Blue Bulls Company on retaining the services of the wing, “Cornal offers the full package and is the epitome of what a world class wing should be. He has an amazing work rate and is one of the best finishers in the country. His approach and attitude to the game, his team and life in general is an example for anybody. We are proud to have him pledge the next part of his rugby journey with us”
Hendricks was a star member of the Blitzboks Sevens team before going on to make his test debut against Wales in 2014. However, his career has been far from plain sailing from thereafter he was forced to put his playing career on hold due to a serious heart condition in early 2016.
Hendricks spent more than three years in the wilderness between 2016 and 2019 - from the time he left the Cheetahs to join the Stormers, whom he never played a single game for.
He won 12 international caps and scored five tries and fought back to professional rugby at the end of 2018 when the Bulls took a chance on him which has since paid dividends.
