Jan started his international playing career in 1965 and there is info about him on almost every second entry of that 65 tour (see here;

Ellis also played against the 1974 Lions (see the photo gallery) and the 1976 All Blacks (see the match against Transvaal and the first test match).

Jan Ellis actually ranks number 11 on our top 100 Springbok list. He certainly belongs there.
