Loose forward

Lentjes joined the Highlanders early in the 2015 campaign after a number of loose forward injuries opened the door for a call up from NPC level. A mobile loose forward, Lentjes gets around the park well and is a strong runner with the ball in hand.

Lentjes had an unfortunate past couple of seasons with injury but managed to impress in the limited game time he had in the 2021 Super Rugby season. After being named Captain of the side in 2020, the openside flanker has embraced a leadership role to what is a relatively young team and will look to continue this in future years.
