Blue Bulls coach Jake White rushed to hospital

The Director of Rugby for the South African Blue Bulls franchise was rushed to hospital on Sunday evening. The 59-year-old technician was returning from Wales where his team had just faced the Newport Dragons (14-29 victory). He complained of severe stomach cramps when he arrived in Johannesburg. Rushed to a hospital in Pretoria, he had to undergo an operation. The two-hour intervention went well, according to a statement from the South African franchise.

Return scheduled in a month

Bulls CEO Edgar Rathbone visited White on Monday morning and delivered a reassuring message: “It’s never good to see one of ours in this kind of situation, but we have complete confidence in the medical team so that they can allow him to recover well, he reacted. We would like to thank all the doctors and experts who have been involved with Jake. We had a front row seat to understand why our country’s medicine is one of the best in the world. »

Due to the post-operative consequences and having to follow a functional rehabilitation program, Jake White should only resume his duties in a month, on February 8.
