    Goosen extends Cheetahs stay

    2012-04-18 08:54
    Cape Town - Cheetahs flyhalf Johan Goosen has extended his contract with the Bloemfontein side until the end of the 2014 season.

    His agent, Jan-Harm van Wyk, confirmed to the news to the Volksblad newspaper on Wednesday.

    "He is happy at the Cheetahs and gets enough game time," said Van Wyk.

    The 19-year-old Goosen has widely been tipped as a future Springbok flyhalf and currently tops the points scoring tally in the Super Rugby competition with 127.

    Goosen was initially only signed until the end of 2013 but Cheetahs coach Naka Drotské apparently convinced the youngster that he will become a Springbok with the Cheetahs.

    And it's not beyond the realms of possibility that 2012 could be the year he makes his Bok debut. He is currently attending a Springbok planning session in Pretoria and with Bok flyhalf incumbent Morné Steyn struggling with his goal-kicking, Goosen may just play himself into the Test line-up.

    Steyn has not been his reliable self when kicking posts this season. He was successful with only three out of eight attempts in the Bulls' 32-18 victory over the Lions over the weekend.

    In earlier games against the Blues and Stormers - both games which the Bulls lost - he also missed vital kicks at crucial times that could have won the game for his side.
