NEWS: Springboksand BlitzBoks wing Cornal Hendricks has joined the Bulls for medical and fitness testing.

Hendricks will train with the Pretoria franchise and undergo a number of medical tests and if all results are positive, will possibly join the Bulls for the upcoming Super Rugby season.
 
The wing, who played Super Rugby for the Cheetahs and scored five tries for the Springboks in 12 tests, has been inactive since a medical condition was diagnosed early in 2016.

It was reported that he was suffering rare heart condition, which cost him a contract with French club Toulon and the Stormers.

"The player [Hendricks] passed a series of medical and physical tests over the last three weeks, but it was decided, for the good of the player in the first place, that he could not join the club," explained Toulon in a statement in January this year without giving further details.
 
Hendricks is keen to return to the playing field pending medical clearance and according to the Blue Bulls Company (Pty) Ltd High Performance Manager Xander Janse van Rensburg they will be happy to see Hendricks continuing his career as a Bulls player.

"We understand the potential health issues and risks and have asked a number of leading specialist in their field to give us their assessments," Janse van Rensburg said.

"Cornal is a world class player and we will be delighted to have him in our squad, but player welfare has always been a non-negotiable priority in the Bulls set-up and will always be seen more important than short term results. We are confident that Cornal will be cleared and will join us."
