Janse van Rensburg to join Stormers in 2016

JC-Janse-van-Rensburg-Lions-SR-2012_2863712Thenewage reported that french-based loosehead prop JC Janse van Rensburg will join the Stormers ahead of the 2016 Vodacom Super Rugby season.

The powerful former Lions captain is currently in his third season with French club, Bayonne, but he will bolster the Stormers’ propping resources as of November 1 with Steven Kitshoff having decided to further his career in France.

Janse van Rensburg, 29, toured Europe with the Springboks in 2012 (without getting any game time), as well as making over 50 appearances for the Lions at Super Rugby level and winning well over 50 provincial caps for the Golden Lions.

The hard-working front-ranker also boasts extensive top-level captaincy experience, having earned plenty of plaudits for his captaincy of the Lions at both Super Rugby and Currie Cup level.

“I think I’m a better player for my experience in France, but I’m looking forward to returning home and joining a talented an ambitious team like the DHL Stormers,” said Janse van Rensburg.

“I cannot wait to make the move to Cape Town and I look forward to contributing to the success of the DHL Stormers.
