The Bulls have secured the services of U21 duo Marvin Orie and Joshua Stander for the next two years.
While both players made senior debuts for the Blue Bulls earlier this year, their future at the Pretoria-based team remained in doubt. Orie was strongly linked with a move across the Jukskei to the Lions and flyhalf Stander was also looking at other possibilities.
But the Bulls moved swiftly to secure the signatures of the two youngsters until the end of the 2016 season.
'There was talk of Marvin and Joshua leaving us, but we have a lot of faith in their abilities. We have invested a lot in their development, as they joined us straight out of school, so it is pleasing to see the loyalty continue both ways. We are looking forward to their contributions in 2015 and beyond,' said Blue Bulls high performance manager Xander Janse van Rensburg.
