De Jongh signs contract extension

Western Province centre Juan de Jongh has committed his future to side, by signing a three-year contract extension.

The young Springbok, who turns 24 on Thursday, has opted to stay with the Cape side – and by extension the Stormers franchise – until the end of 2015. His current deal expires at the end of this season, but he clearly has no plans to go elsewhere.

The recent decision by Jaque Fourie to turn his back on WP must have played a big part in de Jongh’s decision, as he is now very firmly established as first-choice outside centre and can continue to build a strong case for Bok inclusion on that platform.

  • I’m probably in the minority here in my view that De Jongh is an over-rated, one-trick pony…

  • @Culling Song (Comment 11) : Thing is he’s got a great step with some decent pace. If he gets just enough space and he doesn’t need much he will step you and make you look really silly. He’s still rusty, will be back to his best soon I think.

  • @Culling Song (Comment 11) : Seconded but in saying that, I really hope he proves me wrong. As Ben mentioned – he’s got pace and that’s not a terrible thing.

    Not completely alone. He is good, but not international quality good yet, IMO. Just has the inside step as an attacking threat.
