Ricky Januarie is a scrum-half for the Stormers in the Super 14 and he is also a South African international. His first franchise was the Lions and he made a try-scoring international debut in 2005 for the Springboks against Uruguay but has often been an understudy to the highly impressive Fourie Du Preez throughout his international career.
In 2007 he was part of the World Cup winning squad but he was restricted to just two pool stage appearances against Samoa and Tonga.
A year later he left the Lions to join the Stormers and in 2009 Januarie played in the first Test as a replacement against the British & Irish Lions in a tense 26-21 victory. He did not feature in the two remaining Tests as the Springboks won the series 2-1.
