The 31-year-old, capped 37 times by South Africa, has been with Clermont since 2015. He previously played with the Cheetahs (1999-2009) and Bulls (2009-2015), winning the Super Rugby title with the latter in 2010.

Van der Merwe has become a mainstay of Clermont's pack, having started 23 of the 30 games he's been involved in since joining, and already 10 this season.
