    Cape Town - Handre Pollard has suffered yet another injury blow with the Bulls confirming that the Springbok flyhalf has damaged his right ankle. 

    The injury to his syndesmosis joint occurred during a training session on Thursday morning. 

    He is expected to be sidelined for between 8 to 10 weeks.

    The Bulls have confirmed that Pollard will visit a specialist regarding a surgical procedure that will be performed to correct the injury.

    Pollard missed the 2016 season after rupturing knee ligaments. 

    A 8 to 10 week stint on the sidelines would see Pollard miss the three-Test series against France which starts in seven weeks on Saturday.
