    2013-02-13 19:25
    Cape Town - The Blue Bulls Company (BBC) on Wednesday announced that centre Jan Serfontein has extended his contract with the union and will remain a Bulls player in the foreseeable future.

    Serfontein is one of the brightest young stars in South African Rugby and indeed in world rugby, having being voted IRB Junior World Championship player-of-the-year in 2012.

    The 19-year-old midfielder has taken to senior rugby with ease and according to the BBC’s High Performance Manager Xander Janse van Rensburg, they are delighted to secure the extension.

    “We have built a very good relationship with Jan since he was a schoolboy and I am happy to see him continuing his career in Pretoria. We obviously rate his ability as a player very high, but we are also delighted to secure someone who is a wonderful team player and human being.”

    Serfontein, who hails from Port Elizabeth, said it was an easy decision.

    “Home is where the heart is and I am very happy in Pretoria. The Bulls rugby family is indeed a special one and their work ethic commendable, something I want to be part of for the next couple of years.”
