The Vodacom Bulls have ramped up their off-season player negotiations by securing the services of a key playmaker on a long-term deal.
Bulls scrumhalf Keagan Johannes has committed to extend his stay at Loftus Versfeld by re-signing until 2026.
His contract extension comes on the back of the renewal by veteran flyhalf Morne Steyn, who has already signed on until June 2023.
The 22-year-old Johannes has had a good start to his career at the Bulls since his senior debut in 2021 and remains a promising future talent for the Pretoria side.
“We are excited to have extended Keagan Johannes’ contract at the Bulls for another four years,” said Bulls director of rugby Jake White.
“Keagan is certainly a big part of our plans going forward. At his young age, he has proven himself as a quality player with so much more to give in years to come. We are looking forward to seeing him contribute further and grow into the exceptional player we know he will become.”
