Cape Town - Former Springbok prop BJ Botha has signed a six-month contract extension to remain at Munsteruntil at least December 2015.

According to the Irish Times website, Botha joined the province at the start of the 2011/12 season and has made 93 appearances.

Head coach Anthony Foleysays the deal is a huge boost to all involved in the province.

    “BJ’s contract is up at the end of this season but after working closely with the IRFU we have thankfully secured the services of a player of his calibre for a further six months.

    “He brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to the scrum and front row and it is a huge boost to the squad to have him available during the World Cup window when our squad numbers will be reduced.”

    Botha, 35, has 25 Springbok caps to his name and was a member of the South African squad that won the 2007 Rugby World Cup.
