The Sharks have called in Leopards prop John-Roy Jenkinson to provide cover at tight head prop for the remainder of the Currie Cup campaign.

24-year-old Jenkinson, who will play for the team on a loan basis, is no stranger to Durban, having matriculated a Glenwood High and represented KZN at Craven Week level, before moving to Potchefstroom after school.

He also represented the Junior Springboks at the 2011 IRB Junior World Championship.

At 1.78m and an impressive 122kg, John-Roy should provide decent cover in a position now looking a little thin, after Lourens Adriaanse’s injury. Welcome back to Durban!

  • Who are the other tightheads in line for game time if both Adriaanse and Du Toit are out?

  • @SheldonK (Comment 9) : I know…Rob said so too a comment earlier. I said that he came on as hooker in the warmup game to back up my comment that I had never seen him or the other chap at prop. I will be interested to see them this weekend…

  • @coolfusion (Comment 12) : I think Coenie only joins from Super rugby. But with that neck he is a problem…

  • @SheldonK (Comment 13) : Ja, saw him that Friday night…and he was not small. I didn’t know who he was and was amazed to see him go on at hooker! Now I know…and am still wondering whether he is not a worthwhile “Tom Lawton Experiment”…he’ll have to learn to throw into a lineout…but he can’t be worse at that than the current lot. For now we need him at tighthead though and so I look forward to seeing him there if he gets a shot…

  • @pastorshark (Comment 16) : Ya look at the moment he could kick the ball into the lineout and still be better than Hadebe. Marais only slightly better
