Drotske shot three times by armed robbers
World Cup winner Naka Drotske was shot three times after charging at armed robbers to force them out of his brother’s house in South Africa on Thursday.
Drotske was shot in the chest, arm and abdomen but was in a stable condition in hospital after the attempted robbery at his brother’s smallholding just outside the capital Pretoria.
Police Captain Kay Makhubele said three suspects with handguns broke into the house at around 10pm local time on Thursday. Capt Makhubele said Drotske was the only person hurt and no arrests have been made.
Drotske’s friend, Os du Randt, a team-mate in the 1995 World Cup champion Springboks side, was also at the house.
