  • Naka Drotske, with Os du Randt

Two men have been taken in for questioning by police regarding the attack on Naka Drotske.

Drotske, who coached the Cheetahs between 2007 and 2015, was reportedly shot three times.

Former Springbok hooker Naka Drotske was in critical condition in hospital on Friday after being shot during an armed robbery outside the South African capital Pretoria.

He was visiting his brother when three armed robbers attacked.

When Tinus phoned Naka's wife, Marzanne, he told her that "Naka saved my children's lives".

Police spokesperson Kay Makhubela says a case of attempted murder and house robbery has been opened, with no arrests having been made yet.

"He's stable. He's lost a lot of blood but he's stable now", Cameron said.

Drotske was a part of the historic World Cup-winning Springbok side in 1995, when the nation's rugby team helped lift the nation during an emotional summer that saw South Africa host their first major sporting event since the downfall of the apartheid regime.

Drotske was in a critical condition when he was admitted to the hospital, the South African rugby union said, but was stabilised in the intensive care unit.

Du Randt raced Naka to hospital, but veered off the road, causing two tyres to burst.

Drotske won 26 caps for South Africa, scoring three tries.

"From what we hear he is stable and they think it is OK", Cheetahs Rugby CEO Harold Verster told the Sport24 online publication.

South African World Cup victor Naka Drotske has been shot in at a suspected house robbery.

Drotske was shot in a tussle with one of the gunmen while Du Randt escaped unharmed.
