Elton Jantjies heads to the Top 14

Springbok and Lions flyhalf Elton Jantjies has reportedly signed a new agreement which will see him team up with French Top 14 side Pau as a medical joker.

The loan deal is largely so that Jantjies – who is expected to take the starting number 10 role for the Springboks in the absence of the injured Handre Pollard – can enjoy some top level competition before the British & Irish Lions series commences in July.
