Former Springbok hooker Naka Drotské is still being treated in the intensive care unit at Mediclinic Bloemfontein, but is in a stable condition.

Mediclinic general manager Carl Bührmann said on Friday, December 21 2018, that Drotské was ventilated and stable.

Drotské was placed in intensive care in a critical condition after suffering from “massive bleeding” a few days ago.

“He presented with massive internal bleeding, which led to hemorrhagic shock that required a blood transfusion,” Mediclinic spokesperson Barbara Steenkamp said at the time.

The former coach of Super Rugby side the Cheetahs suffered the setback while recovering from being shot three times during a robbery on November 29 2018 at his brother Tinus’s smallholding in Kameeldrift, Pretoria.

Drotské played 26 Tests between 1993 and 1999. He played one game during the 1995 World Cup in SA.
