Springbok and Lions centre Rohan Janse van Rensburg collected the most votes during the first run of MyPlayers Player of the Month in February, proudly presented by MyPlayers- The Rugby Players’ Organisation and The Safari Guys.
Rohan Janse van Rensburg competed against Springbok and Stormers flank Siya Kolisi, Cheetahs flyhalf Fred Zeilinga and Springboks Sevens duo Seabelo Senatla and Chris Dry for the first coveted monthly prize.
Janse van Rensburg received the most votes from his peers, having delivered powerful performances during the Lions’ victories over the Cheetahs (28-25) and Waratahs (55-36) in recent weeks.
The 22-year-old centre scored two tries to help the Lions edge their Bloemfontein rivals away from home, while his brace against the Waratahs not only sealed an emphatic win, but was in honour of his late mother, who recently passed away following a long battle against cancer.
Janse van Rensburg was honoured to receive this great recognition from his rugby peers.
“It’s been an exciting start to this year’s Super Rugby campaign and to have gotten a win over the Cheetahs was a perfect start for us”, said the 109kg-heavy centre.
“I was surprised to walk away with player of the month award and for that I must say a massive thank you to my team mates and fellow players who voted for me. A special thanks as well to MyPlayers and The Safari Guys for putting together this awesome incentive for the players.”
