Bulls have confirmed that South Africa international Trevor Nyakane has penned a new deal that will keep him with the Super Rugby club at least until the end of the 2019 season.

Nyakane made his senior debut with Free State Cheetahs and also had a brief loan stint with Griffons before making his Super Rugby debut for Bloemfontein outfit in 2012.

His switch to Bulls came in 2015 and overall has 91 Super Rugby appearances for the two clubs combined.

Blue Bulls High Performance Manager Xander Janse van Rensburg expressed delight on Nyakane extending his stay with the club.

“He is an absolute team-man, and an inspiration to us all. We are privileged to have an athlete of his calibre.”

Nyakane has played 37 Tests for South Africa since his debut in 2013 with his last appearance for the Boks coming in December 2017 during the clash against Wales at Millennium Stadium.
