The Vodacom Bulls have officially confirmed the signing of Springbok utility back Johan Goosen from French club Montpellier.
The 28-year-old flyhalf, who can hold his own at centre and fullback, is a product of Grey College in Bloemfontein.
He has featured for the Cheetahs, Junior Springboks (2011), the Springbok XV (2014) and the Springboks (13 Tests).
In France, Goosen has turned out for Racing Metro and Montpellier before being lured back to South Africa. He will link up with the Bulls on 1 July 2021.
‘We are definitely excited for Johan’s imminent arrival in Pretoria and look forward to his contribution. He has consistently performed at the highest level since his early days and his experience will bode well for our younger backs while providing us with attacking opportunities when he takes the field,’ said Bulls coach Jake White.
Goosen added: ‘I’m excited to be returning to my homeland and representing the Bulls who are rising in strength day by day. Rugby in Pretoria has an exciting future and I’m grateful to be part of it.’
