Bok dietician was helping Jantjies with night-time snacking issue

SA Rugby have revealed that the Springbok team’s dietician was in fact helping star flyhalf Elton Jantjies with a night-time snacking issue and there was nothing untoward about their relationship.

South African media wrongly reported that Jantijies and Zeenat Simjee were having an affair during the Rugby Championship.

The truth is that Jantjies eats between meals and often snacks at nighttime, which has been giving him bouts of indigestion. Dietician Simjee decided the best course of action was to monitor him during the night to make sure he stayed away from high calories treats, a habit which has seen his form dip in recent seasons.

Witnesses that claimed the pair were having an affair and making amorous noises were also inaccurate. What had happened on the night outside the team hotel was that Jantjies had choked on pretzel and Simjee was forced to repeatedly perform a Heimlich Maneuver on the player, a process that took a good 4 to 8 minutes and had to be repeated about 30 minutes later that night.

Nevertheless, SA Rugby were forced to send the pair home. “The Springbok management are aware of reports regarding Springbok flyhalf Elton Jantjies and team dietician Zeenat Simjee between the training camp in Sabie and the Test match against New Zealand in Mbombela earlier this year,” they said in a statement. “No team protocols were breached, but the individuals are returning to South Africa to attend to these personal reports and to eliminate any distractions to the team’s preparations for the Test against Argentina.

“No further comment will be made at this time.”

On a side note, sources within SA Rugby have revealed that attractive Elton Jantjies is irresistible to all women and that despite their best efforts it is effectively impossible to deter suitors.

It’s how he ended up with such a gorgeous wife, despite being s massive doos in real life!
