Cape Town - Springbok loose forward Arno Botha highlights a number of contract extensions announced by the Blue Bulls Company on Tuesday.

Botha, a former Junior Springbok captain, has extended his contract until October 2017.

The BBC High Performance Manager, Xander Janse van Rensburg, confirmed a number of players had extended their stays and confirmed the signing of flank Nick de Jager. 

Formerly of Maties and Stellenbosch University, De Jager will arrive from Saracens where he was playing the last two years.

"De Jager has signed a contract till the end of Super Rugby next year,” Janse van Rensburg confirmed.

“We are also delighted at the list of youngsters that have opted to further their careers at Loftus. Jaco Visagie, Janus Kirsten and Nqoba Mxoli all showed their true worth against the Canon Eagles in Japan, and will certainly add tremendous value to our structures going forward.

“Matthys Basson, Duncan Matthews and Kobus Marais have also shown an amazing temperament and hunger to take the next step into senior rugby.”

Bulls contract extensions:

Arno Botha (October 2017)

Jaco Visagie (October 2017)

Jannes Kirsten (October 2017)

Matthys Basson (October 2017)

Nqoba Mxoli (October 2017)

Duncan Matthews (October 2018)

Kobus Marais (October 2016)
