Pollard a concern for Blue Bulls in Currie Cup

Flyhalf Handre Pollard is the only confirmed casualty ahead of the Blue Bulls opening match of the Currie Cup competition that stars this weekend.

Pollard is recovering from a shoulder injury and although he will be training this week, will not yet be exposed to contact drills, ruling him out of the season’s opener at Newlands on Saturday.

Courtnall Skosan will also only train on Wednesday due to a quad strain, but will be available for selection for the match against defending champions, the Western Province.

Francois Hougaard (ankle) and Basil Short (knee) has been added to the long term casualty list

Following operations, they will join Cornell Hess (knee), Deon Stegmann (shoulder), Arno Botha (knee), Pierre Spies (bicep) and Louis Fouche (knee) in a rehab program for the next four to six months.
