Transfer News: Springbok duo sign new contracts
The Bulls have announced that Springboks Embrose Papier and Warrick Gelant have pledged their commitment to the club by signing contract extensions.
The Bulls announced that Papier, a debutant for the Springboks in 2018, has signed on till 2021, while Gelant, widely regarded as one of the most exciting full-backs in world rugby, will continue representing the Bulls till at least 2020.
Both players declined offers from the Stormers and will continue their futures in the province where they made their Currie Cup, Super Rugby and Springboks debuts.
The two extended contracts are but a number of leading players who on Monday signed new deals. Conraad van Vuuren (2020) and Johnny Kotze (2020) starred for the Bulls in Super Rugby this year and will continue to do so, while Junior Springboks, Ruan Nortje and Mornay Smith did the same. Nortje (2020), who played for the Junior Boks this year, made his Super Rugby and Currie Cup debuts as well this year, with Smith (2020) representing the Bulls for the first time as well.
