Ex-Springbok Shot Three Times During Robbery

Naka Drotske: South Africa World Cup winner shot during robbery in Pretoria

Naka Drotské, the former Springbok hooker, was shot during a home invasion by armed men on a smallholding outside of Pretoria last night.

"Naka was shot and is now in critical condition in hospital".

It's understood three armed assailants attacked Drotské, his business partner and fellow Rugby World Cup victor Os du Randt, and Naka's brother on a smallholding in Kameeldrift, outside Pretoria on Thursday evening.

The 47-year-old 1995 World Cup victor was shot in a tussle with one of the assailants, while Du Randt escaped harm.

"From what we hear it is stable and they think it is okay", Verster said.

"According to information we received, he sustained two gunshot wounds in his upper body and one on his leg", said Cameron. 'The children, no one else was harmed'.

Drotske is reportedly set to undergo an emergency operation.

Police have taken two suspects in for questioning over the Naka Drotske shooting.

No arrests had yet been made, police captain Kay Makhubele told reporters.

Drotske, who coached the Cheetahs between 2007 and 2015 after having spent most of his playing career in Bloemfontein, was shot three times, including once in the chest.

London Irish tweeted: "Our thoughts are with former London Irish player Naka Drotske after this shocking news".

The 47-year-old gained 26 caps for South Africa and featured once in their 1995 World Cup-winning campaign.

'Naka jumped up and stormed them, and then they shot him three times, and then they luckily fled, ' Tinus told TimesLive.
