The talented youngster scaled every height in schoolboy rugby, quickly making the transition to the South African national age-group teams and winning South Africa international tournaments as an 18-year-old. He played for the SA Schools A side in 2019, and for the Junior Springboks in 2021.

Jordan then made his mark on the senior rugby scene when he debuted for the Lions at the age of 19 in 2021. His stellar debut season was rewarded with nominations for the 2021 Junior Springbok Player of the Year and SA Young Player of the Year awards.

In 2022, Jordan was called-up to the Springboks Sevens squad for the London Sevens and made an impressive debut for the Blitzboks.

In January 2024, it was announced that Jordan will join the Sharks from the 2024-25 season.

Jordan has many interests away from the field, including cooking, health and fitness, as well as fashion. He also remains especially determined to support his community through outreach work in South Africa.
