Jaco played an integral part in the South African under-21 victory at the 1999 Sanzar mini-World Cup. An elusive runner, Pumas coach Chris Grobler regards him as the "next generation" flyhalf to follow in the footsteps of the likes of Hennie le Roux and Henry Honiball. Still a young player, he has the talent and skills to reach great heights in the local and international arena.
