Springbok and Lions 10's Face Off In The Top 14

Springbok and Lions 10's Face Off In The Top 14

Pau and Racing 92 have named their sides to play in the Top 14 opening game of the weekend tomorrow. Apart from the blockbuster backline named by the visitors, all eyes will be on the pivots, as Elton Jantjies and Finn Russell face off against each other.

With Jacques Nienaber yet to name his Springbok squad to face the British and Irish Lions, it is unlikely Elton Jantjies will miss out on the squad for form reasons and it is very likely we will see a Jantjies v Russell battle in a Lions test match at some stage.
