Pollard to run with the Vodacom Blue Bulls

Junior Springboks and Vodacom Blue Bulls flyhalf Handrè Pollard will train with the Vodacom Blue Bulls today and if all goes well, will be considered for their match against GWK Griquas at Loftus Versfeld on Friday. Vodacom Blue Bulls team doctor Org Strauss confirmed on Monday that Pollard has recovered fully from a shoulder injury and will be able to play on the weekend.

Wiaan Liebenberg (concussion) and Jacques du Plessis (shoulder) will only train on Tuesday, Strauss said.

Unfortunately there was not such good news for stalwart winger Akona Ndungane, who will be out of action for another week following a hamstring strain. Courtnall Skosan has also been cleared after a quad strain and will be fit to travel to London, where the Vodacom Blue Bulls Sevens team will play in the inaugural World Club 7s at Twickenham.

The long term injury list still consists of Basil Short (knee), Francois Hougaard (ankle), Cornell Hess (knee), Deon Stegmann (shoulder), Arno Botha (knee), Pierre Spies (bicep), Louis Fouchè (knee) and all will be out between three to six months.
