Herschel Jantjies

22nd Apr 1996 1.67m/75kg Scrum Half

Promising young halfback Herschel Jantjies represented Western Province at youth level while at Paul Roos Gymnasium.

He went onto represent UWC in the Varsity Shield and was named on the Varsity Cup Dream Team to face the U20 Springboks in 2017.

Since then Jantjies has been involved with both the Stormers and Western Province but is yet to make his Currie Cup or Super Rugby debuts.

In November 2017, Jantjies signed on a short-term loan with Scarlets, who had an injury crisis at the time, for their clash with the Cheetahs.

Jantjies was named in the Stormers wider training squad for the 2018 Super Rugby season and will look to make his debut in the competition after representing Scarlets.

The young halfback enjoyed a stellar full rookie season in Super Rugby scoring five tries and made 15 appearances, mostly in the starting line up.

His form in the competition earned him a call up to the Bok alignment camp ahead of the Rugby Championship.

Jantjies made his test debut in the starting line up against the Wallabies at Ellis Park on 20 July 2019 and scored two tries in a 35-17 victory and became the first Springbok scrumhalf to score two tries on debut.
