JOHANNESBURG – Ahead of a busy international season, Lood de Jager made an impressive return to action for the Blue Bulls against Western Province at Newlands on Saturday.
Springbok assistant coach Matt Proudfoot was pleased with the game time and performance of De Jager, who played just over 50 minutes for the Bulls.
It was the Springbok lock’s first time back on the field since he was sidelined with an injury early in the Super Rugby campaign.
“Lood understood and executed their plan, and now we are looking forward to get him firing in our system,” said Proudfoot.
“We arrived in Johannesburg on Sunday and everyone is buzzing – we realise it’s a huge year for the Springboks and for the country.”
