The Bulls confirmed that young prop Simphiwe Matanzima sustained a complete tear of his Achilles tendon during a conditioning session.

He underwent successful surgery on Friday.

While he is expected to make a full recovery, he will be out for an extended duration – which may last up to 9 months.

“It’s a long road to recovery, but we have no doubt that he will tackle it head-on with the positive energy and come out smiling as he always does,” the Bulls said in a statement.
