Stormers star reveals decision on playing future

NEWS: Loose forward Hacjivah Dayimani has signed a contract extension that will see him stay in Stormers colours until at least 2025.


The dynamic Dayimani has made a big impression since returning to the city of his birth in 2021 and will have plenty of opportunities to express himself further in a Stormers jersey.

He played an important role in the Stormers claiming the inaugural United Rugby Championship title last season and has built further on that this season with a number of top performances at the back of the scrum.

A loose forward with considerable athletic ability, Dayimani does not fit any mould and brings his own flair to everything he does on the field for the Stormers.

Head coach John Dobson said that it is great to know that Dayimani will form part of the future growth of the team.

“Hacjivah is a special player who brings something completely unique to our team, so we couldn’t be happier to have him extend his contract with us.

“He keeps everyone on their toes on and off the field and is already a crowd favourite at Cape Town Stadium, so we expect that to grow even further in the seasons ahead.


Dayimani said that he wants to keep developing his game with the Stormers.

“The team environment here is incredible, everyone involved is able to be themselves and express themselves, which is really important to me.

“There is still so much that we can achieve together and I really want to be part of that, so I couldn’t be happier to extend my contract,” he said.
