DHL Stormers coach Allister Coetzee said: “Family comes first, so we immediately got Elton onto a flight back home.

 

“Elton can take as long as he needs to process this and work through his grief. He has the full support of all of us at Western Province and Stormers rugby.”

 

Thomas Jantjies was 46 years old and he died after complications following a bee sting on Saturday.
