All Blacks winger Will Jordan continued his journey towards superstardom today as New Zealand comprehensively saw off South Africa in round two of the Rugby Championship.
At the heart of just about every Kiwi attack, the 25-year-old once again highlighted his important to Ian Foster’s squad.
His silky smooth running, quick thinking and eye for a gap had the Springboks at sixes and sevens throughout the match.
Exposing their usually resolute rush defence, Jordan found plenty of joy on the fringes winning several one-on-ones.
His first break early in the fixture set Aaron Smith on his way for the opening try of the match.
Minutes later, Jordan would make yet another half break to set up backrow Shannon Frizell for the All Blacks second try.
With Richie Mo’unga’s two conversion and a penalty the All Blacks would lead 17 – 0.
Jordan would once again strike with twelve minutes to play as the All Blacks had just weathered a Springbok storm that saw the World Champions close back into the contest.
This time he would be the one to capitalise as he gathered a Beauden Barrett kick to slide in for a try of his own.
It is rare for any player not named Antoine Dupont to have a ten out of ten performance but Will Jordan joined the French captain today as he was utterly flawless.
Hey Siri ‘What is World Class?’
“Will Jordan is a rugby player from New Zealand”
