    Eugene Jantjies is the fourth member of Namibia’s Rugby squad who will be playing in a third Rugby World Cup tournament. Gobabis-born Jantjies is a product of Windhoek High School and after representing his country at Craven Week for both primary and high schools he joined one of Namibia’s famous clubs, Western Suburbs. Following solid performances at the 2007 Rugby World Cup in France he was picked up by Romanian outfit, Farul Constanta where he played until the end of the 2014 season. In 2012 he had a short stint at the Leopards in South Africa’s North West Province where he earned six caps. Jantjies played in three of Namibia’s matches in their 2011 Rugby World Cup campaign in New Zealand. With former All Black Christian Cullen as his favourite rugby player it is no surprise that Jantjies is an attacking and enterprising, half-back, equally at home in the no. 10 jersey. He made his debut for Namibia in his country’s 84-12 win over Kenya in Windhoek in June 2006. Injuries and club commitments have prevented him from winning more than the 43 caps he has to his name - the joint second highest capped Namibian player with Tinus du Plessis.
