Arno Botha is among a dozen players who have signed contract extensions with Pro14 side Munster.
The former Blue Bulls No 8 joined the Limerick-based side at the start of the 2018-19 season from London Irish, who he signed for at the beginning of the year.
Botha was originally on a year-long contract but has been able to prolong his stay in Ireland after a solid start to the season.
The 27-year-old made his debut against the Cheetahs and has been in good form, scoring his first try for Munster against the Ospreys in September. He joins coach Johann van Graan and flanks Chris Cloete and CJ Stander as the South Africans involved with the club.
