Cornal Hendricks to join the Bulls

The Blue Bulls have announced that Cornal Hendricks will join the club for the upcoming 2019 Super Rugby season.


The 30-year-old winger played 12 test matches for South Africa, the last in 2015, before a heart condition sidelined the player who was due to take up a contract with the Stormers at the time.


After thorough examinations and testing Hendricks has now been cleared to play again by a leading heart specialist, while the player himself declared that he is fully aware of his diagnoses and possible effects and/or risks associated with his condition and happy to give it another go.


“As with any rugby player that plays this beautiful game, I fully understand the risks that go with it as I enter into this contract with the BBCo. I accept such risks," said Hendricks. 


"I have played in a number of invitational tournaments around the world in the last two years, so I am keen to become part of a team structure and squad again, especially one known for their good culture and structure. The Vodacom Bulls are definitely a team in an upward curve, so it is pretty exciting joining them."
