The Springboks squad are documenting their travels To France ahead of the Rugby World Cup kick-off next week. And making a special appearance in one of the travel vlogs is dietician Zeenat Simjee, who was reportedly romantically linked to player Elton Jantjies.

A year ago, Simjee and Jantjies made headlines over their alleged affair after being spotted at a Mbombela guest house together.

While Zeenat has made the squad set to defend their title at the tournament, Elton is fighting off rumours of an alleged doping scandal.

In a video filmed by Damian Willemse, members of the Rugby World Cup squad are seen boarding a plane en route to Corsica, France. The team will remain there until they take on Scotland in its first match on 10 September.

Making an appearance are players Cheslin Kolbe, Siya Kolisi, Duane Vermeulen, RG Snyman, Kurt-Lee Arendse, Makazole Mapimpi, and Faf de Klerk, whom Damian mocks over his long blonde hair.

Zeenat has kept a low profile after denying her alleged affair with Elton Jantjies in the past few months.

However, when a pic of Simjee and player Canan Moodie was recently shared on social media, critics voiced their fears that the same fate could befall the 20-year-old player as Elton did.

Meanwhile, Elton Jantjies has vowed to prove his innocence after being linked to a doping scandal. According to SA Rugby Mag,  the disgraced player tested positive for Clenbuterol, a fat burner that also aids stamina.

The South African Institute for Drug-Free Sport conducted the test in June via a urine sample.

Elton claimed that he did not knowingly take the substance and would launch an investigation into the results.

He said in a statement: “I have instructed legal representation to assist me in determining the source of the prohibited substance, and I have instructed them to ask for my B Sample to be tested and to launch an inquiry into the possible causes for the positive test.

He continued: “At this stage, I can say little more about the matter. I assure all my supporters that I have not and never will deliberately take a banned substance. I will do everything in my power to prove my innocence.

“This is another setback in what has been a very volatile time for me, but I shall overcome this with the support of my family and friends. I know that there will be those out there who doubt my innocence, but I hope to prove you wrong in due course. For those who support me, thank you.”

Elton – who was left off the Springboks squad, allegedly over the scandal – plays for Frenc club Agen.
