Combrinck recovery ‘going according to plan’

2017-10-26 07:10

Cape Town - Lions and Springbok wing Ruan Combrinck is on the mend following shoulder surgery earlier this month.

The 27-year-old picked up the injury while on duty for his Japanese club Kintetsu Liners and was forced to return back to South Africa to get the injury treated.

Combrinck took to social media on Wednesday saying his recovery process was on track.

Combrinck is eyeing a return to action in April during the Lions' Super Rugby campaign.

Capped seven times at international level, Combrinck has been overlooked this year by Springbok coach Allister Coetzee.

Coetzee's reasoning for not picking Combrinck was that the player had not played enough rugby, having also been sidelined for large parts of this year's Super Rugby competition due to injury.
