There is no hiding from scrutiny and expectation for anyone who dons the Vodacom Bulls number ten jersey and young upstart Pollard will be no exception. Massive expectation comes with the 19-year old playmaker’s elevation to the top echelon, but early indications point to a natural ability by Pollard to adapt to the biggest of challenges.
The decorated Junior Springbok flyhalf showed the necessary temperament in the Absa Currie Cup in 2013 and his brilliant hand speed and tactical reading of the game could allow his hard-running outside backs to prosper.
He is a no-nonsense defender and once his kicking game matches his other skills, higher honours is a given.
