PLAYER WRITE-UP
Early in the 2012 season, big Lodewyk de Jager was still playing for the North West University’s Under-20s in the Varsity Cup Young Guns competition. He has since had a quick rise to the top after making his Vodacom Super Rugby debut for the Toyota Cheetahs last year and came off the bench for his first Test cap against Wales in Durban. “Lood” is a cornerstone of the Cheetah pack in Vodacom Super Rugby and the Absa Currie Cup. He is a powerful ball carrier and has solid handling and anticipatory skills.
