Jean Kleyn

Stormers Lock, Jean Kleyn, has been making his presence felt on the field both here and abroad. We caught up with this rising talent…


What has been your best game this season?

My best game would certainly be our game against the Waratahs on tour. It was such a big win for us and a
turning point on our tour!


How is your season going?

My seasons isn’t going too badly, I’m getting more and more game time which is great for my rugby.


Most difficult game so far?

By hardest I am going to assume you mean most physical, that would also be the Waratahs. They are a really direct side and very strong. But fortunately the rough stuff is the part of the game I enjoy
the most.


What do you think rugby has taught you and what have you learned this season particularly?

I’ve learned that the Currie Cup and Super Rugby are worlds apart. I would have to say that I have learned a lot from all the senior guys.


Top 5 moments on tour?

1. Eating my first Ferg burger in Queenstown.

2. The view from my hotel room in Queenstown.

3. When we went surfing on Coogee beach.
4 Going on a Jet boat  was a great experience.

5.  My first game on tour. Always a good experience.
