Cape Town - Flyhalf Handre Pollard is confident that he won’t miss the start of the Springboks’ Rugby Championship campaign.
The 24-year-old missed the Bulls’ final Super Rugby match against the Lions at Ellis Park last weekend due to a back injury.
However, he told Netwerk24 that Springbok fans should not be worried ahead of the Rugby Championship.
“If I rest a bit over the next few weeks, then I’ll be raring to go. I’ll definitely not miss any matches,” Pollard said.
Pollard has established himself as the Springboks’ first-choice flyhalf in 2018 and played a vital role in their 2-1 series win over England last month.
The Boks open their Rugby Championship campaign at home against Argentina in Durban on August 18.
