    Jantjies back in Stormers camp

    2013-02-12 18:55
    Cape Town - Stormers flyhalf Elton Jantjies is back in training with the Cape side after taking time out following the death of his father.

    Jantjies - who is on loan from the Lions for the Super Rugby tournament - was given time out after his dad passed away in Pretoria late last month.

    But the Springbok pivot has since returned to Cape Town and, according to the Rugby365 website, will be available for their first Super Rugby outing away to the Bulls on February 22.

    "We are very happy to have him back obviously, and I think Elton is ready to go. He is looking forward to the next couple of training sessions and if he gets selected obviously, to play," said coach Allister Coetzee.

    "I think we all know Elton's abilities and he really looks in good nick so we are looking forward to seeing him play."

    Further good news for the Stormers is that skipper Schalk Burger has recovered well from his calf strain and is expected to return to team training later this week.

    The Stormers played only two warm-up games this year, losing 27-26 to the Cheetahs in Bloemfontein and then beating Boland 57-0 at the Cape Town Stadium over the weekend. However, in order to gain more match practice they will hold some controlled contact sessions against Western Province's Vodacom Cup side.
