Elton will bounce back and we are not worried about player exodus - De Bruin

Lions coach Swys de Bruin says he will continue to back underfire flyhalf Elton Jantjies. Jantjies has copped a lot of criticism for his poor performance in the third Test against England last weekend at Newlands but De Bruin believes that Jantjies will be back at his best in Super Rugby. The Lions have been rocked by a player exodus that involves a lot of senior players who are also Springboks but De Bruin says it is a time for a new crop of players to take their place in the team. The latest player to bid the Johannesburg based franchise farewell is Springbok centre Rohan Janse van Rensburg who will be joining English premiership side Sale Sharks and follows in the footsteps of Jaco Kriel and Ruan Dreyer who will be joining former Lions coach Johan Ackermann at Gloucester.
