Former Armagh player Jacques to play in Super Rugby Final with Golden Lions

Congratulations to former Armagh player Jacques Van Rooyan on reaching the Super Rugby Final with his team, the Golden Lions.

The Lions will play New Zealand team Canterbury Crusaders today at Ellis Park in South Africa.

Jacques played for City of Armagh in the 2011-12 season and made a fantastic impression alongside countryman Tinus Van Wyk.

Unfortunately Jacques’ talent was missed by the Ulster Rugby scouts and he returned to South Africa to take up a professional contract with the Lions in 2013.

Jacques scored a try in the Lions surprise victory over the Hurricans in the Super Rugby semi final and made Planet Rugby’s team of the week.

Everyone in Armagh wishes Jacques all the best in the final.
