A clip of Springboks dietician Zeenat Simjee – who was allegedly romantically linked to player Elton Jantjies – has evoked a strong reaction from fans ahead of the Rugby World Cup, which kicks off next week.

The national team professional – who denied having an affair with the flyhalf – was seen all smiles as she boarded a plane with the players en route to Corsica, France.

But social media users are concerned that Simjee will be a “distraction” to the players during the tournament. The World Cup takes place from 8 September to 28 October. The boys in green and gold will play their first match against Scotland 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.

Also spotted in the upbeat video is Zeenat Simjee, to whom Duane gives a fist pump. Zeenat smiles at the camera as she makes her way to her seat.

While Zeenat has made the squad set to defend their title, Elton is fighting off allegations of a doping scandal.

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, social media users have voiced their concerns that Zeenat Simjee may prove a “distraction” to the Springboks during the Rugby World Cup;

Some have even gone as far as to “warn” her to stay away from star players. Others posted about the “double standards” of her making the World Cup squad.

Here’s what Facebook users had to say:

Mark Gavin: “We might lose the WORLD CUP. They are focused on an EVE and not on the games ahead.”

Morne Steyn: “Vulgar women like this get to keep their jobs, and are still placed on a pedestal with a smug smile on their face.

Grant Leander: “The Springboks’ weakness”

Bra T Nkgabane: “The Spanish football president a man, is fired for a kiss. The team dietician is a woman, and is not fired for having sex”.

Theotonio Davis: “Someone is going to be run over again. Just stay away from Canan Moodie, please”.
