Former Springbok wing, Cornal Hendricks, will make his first appearance in a Super Rugby match since 2015, when the Bulls take on the Jaguares in Buenos Aires on Saturday.

Hendricks who has played 11 test matches for South Africa, was included in the starting 15 for Saturday’s match, replacing right wing Johnny Kotze who is unavailable due to illness.

It’s the only change to the side that beat the Stormers 40-three at Loftus Versfeld last weekend.

The former Springbok overcame a serious heart condition that threatened to prematurely end his career after contracts with Western Province and the Stormers, as well as Toulon in 2016 and 2017, were cancelled due to his health.

But good performances by the 30-year-old in recent warm-up matches, convinced Bulls Head Coach, Pote Human, that the former test star is ready for the big stage again.
