Bulls have announced that Springboks fly-half Johan Goosen has signed a contract extension with the club until 2026.

He becomes the latest player to have signed a contract extension with the club following the likes of Morne Steyn, Cornal Hendricks, Jan-Hendrik Wessels, Ruan Nortje, Keagan Johannes, Mornay Smith (2026) and Elrigh Louw.

The 29-year-old joined Bulls in 2021 after previously representing Cheetahs, Racing, Montpellier. A former South Africa Under 20 international, Goosen made his Springboks debut in 2012 and has gone on to play 13 Tests. He was recently recalled in the Springboks camp.

South Africa director of rugby Jake White believes Goosen's contract extension will benefit the club.

“We are very pleased to confirm that Johan Goosen will remain with the Bulls until 2026," said White.

"He is a very important part of our plans going forward, so to have him commit to the side for the next four years is significant for us".

“Not only is Johan critical for the Bulls, but for South African rugby in general.

"There is plenty that he offers on and off the field where he provides leadership and is a great mentor for the youngsters around him.

"We have no doubt that he will continue to make a huge impact at the Vodacom Bulls over the coming years.”
