Player of the Week - Tony Jantjies
24 March 2013

Tony Jantjies notched up 27 points as the Vodacom Blue Bulls thumped the MTN Golden Lions 54-26 in the Vodacom Cup at Ellis Park in Johannesburg on Saturday. The Blue Bulls pivot kicked five conversions, four penalties and scored a try as the men from Pretoria ran riot in Johannesburg.

This is how the Jantjies’ effort was described in the media: "It was a fantastic display by the flyhalf who directed the backline like a true general does his troops. Jantjies slotted three penalties inside seven minutes as the visitors dominated the opening exchanges.'

He later scored a try as well.

Given his late start to the season due to a personal tragedy and a groin strain, it is clear that Jantjies now got his fitness and focus back.
