Pretoria - The Blue Bulls Company (Pty) Ltd on Tuesday confirmed the extension of contracts with promising junior players Marvin Orie and Joshua Stander.

Both have signed until October 2016, the union announced via a press release.

The 21-year Orie, a former Junior Springbok lock, made his Super Rugby debut in 2014 and is highly regarded as an up-and-coming player and leader. He was part of the Blue Bulls Under-21 team that won the Absa Under-21 Provincial Championship in 2014.

The 20-year old flyhalf Stander scored 98 points for the Blue Bulls Under-21 team and also made his senior Currie Cup debut this year.

Commenting on the two extensions, BBC's High Performance Manager, Xander Janse van Rensburg, said that Orie and Stander are sought-after players.

"There was talk of Marvin and Joshua leaving us, but we have a lot of faith in their abilities. We have invested a lot in their development as well, as they joined us straight out of school, so it is pleasing to see the loyalty continue both ways. We are looking forward to their contributions in 2015 and beyond."
