Ouch! Face fracture for Olivier

2014-01-08 13:19

Cape Town - Former Springbok centre Wynand Olivier badly injured his face while training for his French club, Montpellier, on Tuesday.

Olivier, 30, suffered a triple fracture after a team-mate accidentally ran head-first into Olivier's face, resulting in two fractures to his cheekbone and one to his eye socket.

Olivier tweeted the following on Tuesday:

3 fractures in my face!! Not the ideal start to the year!!! #injured

Olivier will undergo a scan to determine how long he will be sidelined for.

The 37-Test capped centre joined Montpellier from the Bulls in 2013.
