Springboks Outhalf Handre Pollard Signs For French Club
On the move.
Springbok outhalf Handre Pollard will leave the Bulls at the end of the Super Rugby season and link up with Vern Cotter’s Montpellier after the Rugby World Cup in Japan.
Pollard has long been linked with a move away to Europe, with the likes of Ulster, Bath and Harlequins linked with a move for the 25-year-old in recent seasons.
Bulls CEO Alfons Meyer revealed that although they did their best to retain Pollard’s services, they were unsuccessful.
“Handre has been a true servant for us for six years. He has been an outstanding asset, not only to the teams he played for, but also our supporters, to whom he endeared himself from early on with his attitude towards the Vodacom Bulls.
“He will be missed for sure, but we cannot fault his decision to continue his career in France. We wish him well.”
Meanwhile the Bulls have signed Springboks veteran Morne Steyn who will return to the South African side after six years with Stade Francais.
