The 25-year-old road transport management student has been involved with UJ rugby since 2013 and said he was hoping for a memorable end to his time at the varsity.
“I am really keen to end on a high note and we have had good preparation,” said Jordaan, who grew up in Queenstown. “It’s time now to go out and produce the goods.”
Jordaan, who operates as first receiver, said they would need to be mentally prepared for the challenging format of the tournament.
“Playing nine pool games in two days will be a real challenge,” added Jordaan, who was christened Carlisle but is known by almost everyone as CJ.
“Sometimes the breaks between games are only an hour long, so it’s about taking it one game at a time and trying to grow in confidence.”
Jordaan said he had always enjoyed competing in the Varsity Sevens.
“The atmosphere is fantastic and I encourage people to come to watch.”
He adding that maintaining a positive attitude was crucial to their chances.
“We all know the main requirements of sevens are skill, speed and conditioning, but I believe a positive attitude is also essential.
“Your positivity rubs off on others around you and that creates a good vibe in the team.”
Jordaan will be moving to Scotland next year, having signed up to play for the Gala Rugby Club.
