The World Cup-winning Van Staden returned to the fortress in 2021 after spending time with English Premiership side, Leicester Tigers and signed an initial two-year deal which has seen him make 31 appearances for the franchise.

The 28-year-old flank has tallied up 120 combined club appearances over eight years in Pretoria.

“I think this club will always be like my family and Loftus will always be my home.

“This is where my professional career started and it will always be a place that is close to my heart. The opportunity to extend is a privilege and stay for even longer, I am excited to see what is ahead for me and my family,” says Van Staden.

“I have a few top memories like my first Super Rugby match, winning the Currie Cup straight after Covid when this current group started to come together and the other top memory is having my parents at every game since I started to play for the Under-21 side.

“They never missed a game” he adds.

Eskom, as he is affectionately known, says family was a big influence on his decision to remain playing in South Africa but also the Bulls environment.

“I am very happy at Bulls and where I am at this stage in my life.

“Both myself and my wife are very happy to be in Pretoria and are excited to be a part of this team and to stay a part of it for the next few years.”

The ambitious Krugersdorp native says there is bigger and better that lies ahead for both the club and supporters.

“For us a group that keeps getting better and stronger and tighter, playing even better rugby; there will always be room for improvement and we will start to improve in all areas of the game, on and off the field and I think we will become even better and start to dominate as a club even more.”
