    OUCH! Hougaard breaks nose

    2015-03-05 10:48

    Cape Town - Bulls back Francois Hougaard suffered a nasty broken nose in training earlier this week.

    Hougaard, 26, was involved in a collision with a team-mate on Tuesday which left him with three stitches and a broken nose.

    Despite the injury blow, Hougaard should be able to play against the Cheetahs in their Super Rugby derby in Bloemfontein on Saturday (17:05 kick-off).

    The Bulls will name their team later on Thursday.

    After the injury, Hougaard posted a picture on his Instagram account:
