The South African Rugby Union and the Free State Rugby Union have both wished former hooker Naka Drotské a speedy recovery after he was shot in a robbery on Thursday night.

Drotské and his former Springbok and Cheetahs teammate Os du Randt were reportedly having dinner at Drotské’s brother Thinus’ smallholding in Kameeldrift, about 20 minutes north of Pretoria, when the assailants entered the property.

Former Bok hooker Drotské was shot in the arm and abdomen, while Du Randt was not wounded.

Drotské has already had surgery in hospital.

“Our thoughts are with former #Springboks Naka Drotske and Os du Randt and their families, who were the victims of a robbery near Pretoria last night. 

“Naka was shot and is currently in critical condition in hospital. We wish him a speedy recovery,” SA Rugby posted on Twitter.

The Free State Rugby Union added: “Free State Rugby is very shocked by the news. Naka and Os are two of our legendary players, coaches and friends and we keep them in our thoughts and prayers.

“We wish Naka a speedy recovery and wish the families involved all the best in this difficult time.”
