A week ago he was headline news, Prince Monty was ruling the rugby world and making South African history with his 100th Test cap.Yesterday he was back with the paupers and Percy Montgomery was dropped from the Springbok starting line-up to face the Wallabies at King’s Park on Saturday.

Montgomery had a solid first half at Newlands, but his confidence suffered in the second as he missed a couple of high balls and duffed two penalty attempts. It was expected that the 34-year-old would make way for the younger Jantjes, a former SA Schools and SA U19 cricketer with good hands, strong nerves and a willingness to counter-attack. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
