World Cup winning South Africa fly-half Manie Libbok has signed a three-year contract extension with Stormers.

Libbok started his career with Bulls and also had a brief stint with Sharks before moving to Stormers in 2021. He had an impact straightaway as Stormers went on to claim the United Rugby Championship title in 2022.

The 26-year-old follows the likes of Sacha Feinberg-Mngomezulu, Dan du Plessis, Ruben van Heerden and Evan Roos in the players committing their future with the club until 2027.

“Moving to the DHL Stormers had a big positive impact on my career and I want to continue to grow my game here," he told the club's official website.

“It is amazing to be surrounded by teammates and coaches that have such an exciting vision for this team and that is something I definitely want to be part of".

His consistent performance for Stormers helped him gain a mark at the international level as he made his Springboks debut in 2022 and was part of the squad that clinched the World Cup in France in 2023.

“Manie is one of the best players in the world in his position, but more than that he fits our game model and understands how we want to play so well," said Director of Rugby John Dobson.

“He has developed into a real leader in our group and is one of the key game-drivers for us, so to have him part of this growing group that has committed until 2027 is fantastic.

“We have all seen what he can do at our level and on the international stage and at 26 he still has plenty of rugby ahead of him. We are thrilled that he will continue to do his thing in a DHL Stormers jersey and hope to see him reach even greater heights here".
