Rassie Erasmus can’t help but praise ‘awesome’ Herschel Jantjies

Law and Order The South African

Herschel Jantjies stole the show when South Africa opened their 2019 Rugby Championship campaign with a win over Australia.
'Herschel Jantjies scored two tries as South Africa beat Australia 35-17 Saturday in the opening match of the Rugby Championship season in Johannesburg. The Stormers half-back claimed the first and fourth Springbok tries before being warmly applauded when substituted 14 minutes from time at Ellis Park. South Africa outscored Australia by five tries to two for a bonus point win despite resting a number of regulars ahead of an away clash with world champions New Zealand next weekend. Jantjies was one of a record eight black players in the starting XV of the Springboks, a team that used only white players during the apartheid era. Bok coach Rassie Erasmus said while he didn’t want to get carried away, “You don’t want to praise a guy too much, but you can’t do other than praise him after the way he played,” Erasmus said after the match. “If you look at where he was in the Currie Cup last year, and to see him in Test match rugby now … his service, his box kicks, the technical things and the grit on defence, as well as the way he attacked … it was just awesome. “Hopefully he can just grow from here. The confidence is certainly high. The opposition will just be tougher and tougher as we get closer to the World Cup. But it’s a great start from him and he can be very proud.” the coach added.” South Africa face the All Blacks on Saturday in this year’s trimmed down Rugby Championship .
