Springbok prop Frans Malherbe has signed a new extension with the Western Province Professional Rugby (WPPR).
The news follows the recent contract extension of Springbok Damian Willemse as well as front row trio Leon Lyons, Sazi Sandi and Neethling Fouche.
Stormers coach John Dobson was thrilled at the news and hailed the experience of the 30-year-old as vital to the squad.
‘Frans has been central to the scrum culture that has been developed here over the last decade and will provide immense value to the development of the talented young props we have here.
‘His contribution to the Stormers and the Springboks over the years has perhaps not been fully appreciated, but we understand just how fortunate we are to be able to draw on his skill and experience.’
