Jean-Luc du Plessis (born 7 May 1994 in Cape Town) is a South African rugby union player for the Stormers in Super Rugby and for Western Province in the Currie Cup and the Rugby Challenge. His regular position is fly-half.
He represented Western Province at youth level, represented them at the 2007 Under-13 Craven Week competition and at the 2012 Under-18 Craven Week competition. However, at the end of 2012, despite being offered a spot in the Western Province Rugby Institute and receiving a contract with Western Province, he moved to Durban instead to join the Sharks Academy.
Du Plessis' first class debut came for the Sharks XV during the 2014 Vodacom Cup competition. He came on as a substitute in their 40-3 victory over Kenyan side Simba XV at City Park Stadium, Athlone. Within five minutes of coming on, Du Plessis scored a try and kicked the subsequent conversion. His first start came in the following match, a 27-11 defeat to the Eastern Province Kings in Durban, with Du Plessis scoring two penalties.
Du Plessis is the son of former Springbok player and head coach, Carel du Plessis. Two of his uncles, Michael du Plessis and Willie du Plessis, are former Springboks. His cousin Daniël du Plessis is also a rugby player that represented the South Africa Under-20 team in 2015. He went to Kenrigde primary school and to Paarl Boys' High School
