Lodewyk de Jager (born 17 December 1992) is a South African rugby union player for the South Africa national team and Sale Sharks in the English Premiership.[1] He usually plays as a lock.

Career

He played at youth level for the Leopards and also played for Potchefstroom-based university side NWU Pukke.

In 2012, he was included in the Leopards' Currie Cup squad, but failed to make an appearance. Yet, his performances in the 2012 Under-21 Provincial Championship earned him a move to the Free State Cheetahs and he was included in the Cheetahs final squad for the 2013 Super Rugby season.[2]

He joined the Pretoria-based Bulls on a one-year deal for the 2017 Super Rugby season.[3]

On 24 April 2019 it was announced that he would be joining the Sale Sharks ahead of the 2019-20 Premiership season.[4]

International career

In May 2014, De Jager was one of eight uncapped players that were called up to a Springbok training camp prior to the 2014 mid-year rugby union internationals.[5]

De Jager was named in South Africa's squad for the 2019 Rugby World Cup.[6] South Africa went on to win the tournament, defeating England in the final.[7]
