Western Province has sent its condolences to the Jantjies family, after the sad news of the sudden passing of fly-half Elton Jantjies's father, Thomas, at the weekend.

Elton, 22, joined the Stormers at the start of the year but has returned home to be with his family during this sad time.

"Family comes first, so we immediately got Elton onto a flight back home," said Stormers coach Allister Coetzee.

"Elton can take as long as he needs to process this and work through his grief. He has the full support of all of us at Western Province and Stormers rugby."

Thomas Jantjies was 46 years old and he died after complications following a bee sting on Saturday.
