Born and raised in Bloemfontein, Jeremy Jordaan attended Hoërskool Fichardtpark before forming part of the Free State Cheetahs’ U19 Currie Cup campaign. Like so many young players in the central region, Jordaan joined the Griffons to enjoy more game time, and soon formed part of their senior ranks. With a professional debut coming in the 2013 Vodacom Cup, a 22-year-old Jeremy showed all the characteristics to suggest a lengthy career as a second-row enforcer. He continued to shine in the Currie Cup 1st Division, but it was at the University of Johannesburg that Jordaan shone on the national stage.
With all the coverage of the Varsity Cup, larger franchises soon came calling, and Jeremy summarily joined the ambitious Mpumalanga Pumas in the Currie Cup Premier Division. A homecoming to the Free State Cheetahs only served to reinforce his ‘hardman’ reputation, but it was soon clear that Jordaan’s talents stretched further than his dominance of the lineout. Ever the modern tight forward, his work rate, speed, and destructive tackle-breaking ability saw Jeremy often shifted to the back row. With Enisey-STM Krasnoyarsk, he thrived as a ball-carrying No.8 in the European Challenge Cup, whilst his move to Agen has once again profiled an intimidating tight forward, blessed with a brutality suited to the Top 14.
