Springbok loose forward Evan Roos has signed a contract extension with the Stormers until at least 2027.

The former Paarl Boys' High scholar, 24, already has over 50 Stormers caps to his name after joining the senior ranks in early 2021.

In his first URC season, Roos was named Players' Player of the Season, the Next-Gen Player of the Season, and the Fans' Player of the Season. He went on to make his Springbok debut shortly after claiming the URC title in 2022.

Roos said that the decision to sign a three-year contract extension was an easy one.
