Jordan Hendrikse Signs with Roc Nation

Roc Nation Sports International has announced the signing of Junior Springbok and Lions flyhalf, Jordan Hendrikse.

Hendrikse made his debut for the Lions at the age of 19 in 2021 and recently returned from a major injury. His debut season was rewarded with nominations for the 2021 Junior Springbok Player of the Year and SA Young Player of the Year awards.

Roc Nation Sports International will represent Hendrikse’s career both on and off the field.

“My freak injury last year gave me a lot of time to reflect on my career and the aspirations I have for it,” said Hendrikse. “While my dream is to play for the Springboks, I want to make sure I have the right support and resources to make it a reality. I’ve just come back from a tough injury and lengthy rehabilitation, so it’s very exciting for me to be joining Roc Nation at this important time of my career.”
