WATCH Springbok flyhalf Handré Pollard gallivanting on a camel in Dubai



The rugby player and his wife, Marise, are enjoying their last holiday together as a family of two, before their little boy arrives.

The Springboks sure timed their family-planning very well, ensuring they can spend quality time with their wives before their babies are born.

While Springbok lock Eben Etzebeth and his wife, Anlia, are already on nappy duty, his fellow teammate, Handré Pollard is still enjoying sipping on a beer pool side and travelling with his wife before their little ‘bokkie’ arrives.

Eben and Anlia’s little one was born on 16 January 2024 in Umhlanga, KwaZulu-Natal. While there are speculations that the Etzebeths had a baby girl, the parents haven’t revealed the name or gender of their baby to their social media followers yet.

Last week, Mzansi’s jaws were left wide open when Springbok scrumhalf Faf de Klerk’s wife, Miné, took to her Instagram account to share photos of her baby shower. It was a very unexpected, but welcome surprise to their followers.

One Instagram user commented that the Springboks were pretty busy making babies, also congratulating the couple.

“I suspect this is probably another reason why the Boks won the World Cup match because they knew there were Bok babies coming,” another user commented.

Fellow Springbok WAG, Marise couldn’t contain her excitement: “Look how beautiful you look! Yeaaaaaay our baby’s bestieeeeee,” she commented.

Taking to his Instagram account on Tuesday morning, Pollard shared some snaps and video clips of their holiday.

The couple is staying at Bab Al Shams, a luxury resort in the Dubai desert. Pollard is taking full advantage of the activities on offer at the resort, even getting on the back of a camel.

In the short video clip, Handré is seen riding on the back of a camel, wearing dark jeans, a white dress shirt and his vellies. He smiles from ear to ear as the two camels are led past his wife who captures the special moment.
