Sky: 'Yoh, guys! When it rains it pours for poor Elton Jantjies'

"He faces the prospect of being banned from rugby for more than 12 months!" - Sky.

Okay, guys, look, Elton Jantjies has had a bad run for who knows how long. 

It started when he was booted from the Springbok squad for reportedly being seen entertaining the Springboks’ dietician, Zeenat Simjee, at two guesthouses.

After that saga, he was left out of the squad initially due to the rise of Stormers flyhalf Mannie Libbok and now another matter has come to the fold. 

Elton has made a statement after testing positive for the prohibited substance, Clenbuterol - and now faces potential suspension.  

The statement came from the SuperSport website; the Springbok flyhalf was told of the positive test from a urine sample he had to take through the SA Institute of Drug-Free Sport in June.

Sky Tshabalala was quick to respond to the news that the talented flyhalf would face further trouble.

"Guys, this guy can't catch a break, shame. When it rains, it pours for Elton. I just hope it's not a ban that lasts for like two years or worse," says Sky.

The South African Rugby Union (SARU) was quick to respond to the situation, stating that they "respect the process" regarding Jantjies' positive test. 

This carefully worded response indicates that SARU is committed to allowing the proper investigative and disciplinary procedures to unfold, rather than making hasty judgments.

This approach not only shows a commitment to fairness, but also underscores the importance of maintaining the integrity of the sport.

According to SA Rugby Magazine, Elton is willing to fight this matter head-on as he looks to revive his Springbok career.

"I have instructed legal representation to assist me in determining the source of the prohibited substance, and I have instructed them to ask for my B sample to be tested and to launch an inquiry into the possible causes for the positive test," says Elton.
