The flyhalf has been linked to the Kings, Bulls, Sharks and Stormers, with the latter the most viable option after they put a big money offer on the table for his services.
“We met on Tuesday to receive instructions. The decision was made as to which union we would enter into negotiations with. The move will only be finalised at the end of the week,” Adams said via sms.
Jantjies is widely expected to accept the offer and will then return to the Lions ahead of their promotion/relegation match against the lowest-placed South African side at the conclusion of next year’s Super Rugby tournament.
On Wednesday, former Bok centre Brendan Venter told Die Burger that he believed Jantjies could be the difference between a good Stormers team and a championship winning team.
“His core skills are very good. He already has two seasons of Super Rugby behind him and Western Province will get a well-rounded player. He is a brave defender, something he never really gets credit for and he takes on the big forwards - up to a point where it could become a weak point because you don’t want your flyhalf to go to those lengths.”
Well well well wonder what Mike and Moz will make of that. I though his defence was okay. Nothing punishing of course but norma average flyhalf defence agains tbigger men.
So we have Mitchell, Butch and now Venter disagreeing with our resident experts!!
For me I think he will add to the Stormers campaign and I hope he comes.
