Haunted and hungry

Stormers centre Marius Joubert wants his Springbok jersey back.

SAR_110.jpgIn the March issue of SA Rugby magazine, on sale Monday 20 February, Joubert expresses his desire to win back the green and gold No 13 jersey.

“I realise I’m at a crossroads in my career,” he tells Chris Hewitt. “I’ve got a lot to prove in the Super 14 if I hope to regain my standing with the Boks. Jaque Fourie is first-choice No 13 now, and that motivates me. It’s why I’m up at the crack of dawn swimming 30 lengths. It’s why I’ve really put it on the line this year.”
