Cape Town - Western Province Vodacom Cup-winning coach John Dobson has agreed to terms on a three-year contract extension.

“I am thrilled to be able to confirm that I have committed to WP for another three years. Province rugby has been a big part of my life.” said Dobson on the Stormers' Facebook page.

“One of my favourite memories as a boy was watching a WP Currie Cup and SA Cup final on the same weekend and I am relishing the prospect of continuing to be part of the growth of Province. The structures, depth, ethos and personnel, that are now already in place, make it a very exciting opportunity,” Dobson added.

WP won this year's Vodacom Cup, beating Griquas 20-18 in the final in Kimberley.
