Junior Springboks and Lions flyhalf Jordan Hendrikse has joined Roc Nation Sports.
The agency said in a statement they would represent the young No. 10 on and off the pitch, providing guidance and support as “his career continues to grow and gain momentum”.
Hendrikse was recently nominated in the Junior Springbok Player of the Year and SA Young Player of the Year categories at the annual rugby awards ceremonies.
Well-known South African rugby players Siya Kolisi, Cheslin Kolbe, Sbu Nkosi and Aphelele Fassi are among the stars represented by Roc Nation Sports. Cricketers Temba Bavuma and Lungi Ngidi are also part of Roc Nation.
“My bizarre injury last year gave me a lot of time to think about my career and the ambitions I have for it,” said 20-year-old Hendrikse.
“While my dream is to play for the Springboks, I want to make sure I have the right support and resources to make it happen. I’ve just come back from a serious injury and a lengthy rehab, so it’s very exciting for me to come to Roc Nation at this important time in my career.”
Hendrikse is currently on tour in Ireland with the Lions, who will face Leinster in a United Rugby Championship match in Dublin on Friday.
