Jordaan, originally from Vredenburg, made his debut for Boland in 2009 and has gone on to earn 94 caps for his side.

Boland head coach Randall Modiba stated that to selected Jordaan as captain was one of the easiest decisions.

"Zandre is a remarkable leader, on and off the field, from the start he bought into our structures and vision for the season.

"My long-standing relationship with Zandre and the knowledge I have of his leadership qualities made the choice easy.

"He understands the Boland culture and traditions," the mentor added.

Frederick Muller and Wayne Wilschut will assist Jordaan as the two vice-captains of the side.
