Date published: March 19 2015

Bulls fly-half Tian Schoeman and props Dean Greyling and Dayan van der Westhuizen have all signed new contracts that tie them in until 2017.

Xander Janse van Rensburg, High Performance Manager of The Blue Bulls Company (Pty) Ltd (BBC) was thrilled that the local trio are staying on.

"We are delighted to have them here for the next couples of years. Dean has been with us since 2005 and has decided not to seek lucrative overseas options to play out his career, but rather stay in Pretoria, where he became a Springbok and won Vodacom Super Rugby titles," Janse van Rensburg said.

"He has been a stalwart over the last decade and it is great to know that he will end his career as a true Blue."

Janse van Rensburg is also excited about Schoeman's development as a player. The 23-year-old made his Bulls debut earlier this year.

"Tian is one of the most promising flyhalves around and his playing style fits perfectly into the Vodacom Bulls and Vodacom Blue Bulls patterns. It is great to know he will be around for the next couple of years," he added.

Van der Westhuizen is still a junior, but was included on the Bulls bench earlier in the Super Rugby season.

"Dayan shows massive potential already and that in a position where players really grow into it over the years. It is a great endorsement for us to have him signing on till 2017," Janse van Rensburg said.
