'I’ve got all the right answers, I’ve got all the facts' - Elton Jantjies fires back at critics

Rugby World Cup-winning Springbok Elton Jantjies shocked the rugby world when it was revealed that he tested positive for the banned substance Clenbuterol last year.

Following the public announcement of his failed test results, Jantjies was handed a four-year ban by the South African Institute for Drug-Free Sport (SAIDS).

Maintaining his innocence since day one, the flyhalf has once again fought back by releasing a video on his personal Instagram page.

Speaking into the camera, Jantjies said that he believes that he will be back earlier than many suspect.

“A lot of people have a lot of questions in terms of my rugby career, but just know that I will be back sooner than you think,” said Jantjies.

“Through all the research, through all the facts, and all the evidence, a lot of organisations have been involved in terms of me being tested for something that I have never used.

“I will elaborate more in terms of me missing my second World Cup, but I am not negative about it because I am preparing myself for much more, something much bigger.

“I’m focussing on the next cycle, but I’ve got a few things that I need to sort out, but I am very positive.

“I truly believe that these last few months are a blessing in disguise. Yes, I want to play rugby and I want to do what I love, but it has created other opportunities for me.

“It’s a big eye opener, so when I get back to the rugby field there is going to be a different version of Elton.

“I just want to thank all my family members who are supporting me. There are a lot of fans who support me and just believe that I will be back on the park sooner than you think.

“I’ve got all the right answers, I’ve got all the facts and I’ve got all the evidence against a lot of organisations that’s not doing it the right way.”

“It has created a lot of answers for me in my personal life and my rugby career.

“There were a lot of people that I actually looked up to, but they disappointed me badly. People that I believed in.”
