Bulls' Olivier suffers setback

2012-01-10 17:47

Johannesburg - Bulls vice-captain Wynand Olivier suffered a slight setback in his comeback from injury when he broke a small bone in his wrist at the weekend.

The injury will take three weeks to recover and will only prevent the midfielder, who is recovering from shoulder surgery and was due to take to the field in February, from sharpening his handling skills, team doctor Org Strauss confirmed.

"It is a broken bone, but luckily not that serious. He will not be able to do stuff like passing exercise, but should be back to full training in about three weeks."

Olivier will be available for the start of the Super Rugby season, which starts in February.

The Bulls will attend a three day training camp at Royal Marang Sports Palace near Rustenburg from Wednesday.

"We just need a little bit of a change of scenery," Bulls coach Frans Ludeke explained.

"The guys have been working very hard at Loftus, so we will break away and continue the hard work somewhere else for the next couple of days. I am very pleased with our progress thus far," Ludeke said.

    Was he blowdrying his hair?

      No he was passing a ball. Something his wrist is not accustomed with.

      No, he tripped on a Shark's jaw.

      Maybe he was passing super rugby trophy's, something your team is not accustomed with!

      Don't knock this guy. He must be included in the Springbok team so he can attract our new sponsor, L'Oreal. When he injures his ankle on the field his hands goes to his head, yelling, 'My hair! My hair!'

    And passing is something he really DOES need to work on.
