Sure Province and Stormers fans have been longing for some positive news out of Cape Town and at least the fact that Evan Roos has signed a four year contract extension with WPPR.
The dynamic loose forward has been an star for Province this year in a rather poor team and the fact that the 21-year old signed with Western Province must be a sign of more positive news going out of the Cape.
Roos who has been injured in the last couple of game for Province in the Currie Cup will play a vital roll for the side in the United Rugby Championship.
DHL Stormers Head Coach John Dobson said that given Roos’ impressive form this year, it made sense to commit him to a long-term contract.
“We are delighted to have a player of Evan’s quality on our books for at least the next four years. There is no doubt that he has made massive strides since joining us and we are excited to see how much better he can get within our system in the years to come,” he said.
Roos said that it made sense for him to commit to WPPR given how he has grown in the environment both on and off the field this year.
“I really feel at home here and I am looking forward to the next four years, working with the coaches and players that we have here to achieve greater things.
“I am still quite young and have got great opportunities to grow as a player here already, so to know that I will be here for at least the next four years means that I can focus on my rugby and doing what I love most,” he said.
