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. He usually plays as a lock.
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.
He joined the Pretoria-based Bulls on a one-year deal for the 2017 Super Rugby season.
On 24 April 2019 it was announced that he would be joining the Sale Sharks ahead of the 2019-20 Premiership season.
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.
De Jager was named in South Africa's squad for the 2019 Rugby World Cup. South Africa went on to win the tournament, defeating England in the final.
