Springbok flyhalf Handre Pollard is the latest on the Japan hit-list after agreeing a deal with NTT Docomo Red Hurricanes post-World Cup. 
 
The Bulls on Tuesday confirmed that Pollard has been given permission to join Japanese outfit NTT Docomo Red Hurricanes for a three month spell at the end of the year.
 
Pollard will join the club in November 2015 and will return to Loftus Versfeld at the end of January 2016, in good time for the 2016 Super Rugby season that starts in mid-February.
 
"Handre is contracted to the Bulls till the end of 2017 and we are already in talks, with assistance from SARU, to extend that to 2019," said Bulls high performance manager Xander Janse van Rensburg.
 
"Handre had a clause in his contract to go to Japan and we are happy to release him for that. In the end, it will give us more leeway to keep Handré at the Bulls for an extended period."
 
This announcement comes soon after the confirmation that Marcell Coetzee is set to join the Honda Heat, along with other players heading to Japan such as Willie le Roux, Francois Hougaard, Andries Ferreira, JJ Engelbrecht and Pierre Spies among others.
