WATCH as Stormers scrumhalf Herschel Janjties shows why he could be a vital component when the Springboks take on Wallabies on Saturday at Ellis Park.

Jantjies will both make his Test debuts on the Highveld.

Jantjies was born in Stellenbosch, where he attended Paul Roos Gymnasium. He represented Western Province at Under-16 level in 2012 and at the Craven Week tournaments in 2013 in 2014.

He progressed to their Under-19 and Under-21 sides and made his first-class debut in Western Province’s match against the Leopards in the 2016 Currie Cup qualification series.

He made four appearances as a replacement for Western Province in the 2017 Rugby Challenge, a competition they would go on to win, before reverting to the Western Province U21 team for the latter half of the season. At the end of 2017, Jantjies was drafted into the squad of Welsh side Scarlets on their visit to South Africa during the 2017–18 Pro14 season and came on as a replacement in their match against the Cheetahs in Bloemfontein.
