Elton Jantjies’ playing future has been confirmed.


The Lions Rugby Company announced that Jantjies has chosen to extend his contract with them for two more years.

The 29-year-old Springbok started his senior career with the Golden Lions in 2010. He also had a brief stint with the Stormers in 2013 when the Lions were dropped from Super Rugby for a season.

Jantjies first played for the Springboks when they took on the Barbarians in 2010. His international test debut came two years later in the Rugby Championship against Australia. The flyhalf now has 34 Test caps for South Africa and will play an important role in the upcoming World Cup.

Handre Pollard’s move to Montpellier after the World Cup will mean that Jantjies is the only proven international flyhalf still plying his trade in South Africa. The Springboks selection policy means that Pollard will still be available for international duty, but the head coach may favour a local player to take the reins.
