The speedster will remain in Cape Town until 2027.

The 21-year-old utility back signed a three-year contract extension together with other exciting backs like Sacha-Feinberg Mngomezulu, Dan du Plessis, Ruben van Heerden, Evan Roos, and Manie Libbok.

Hartzenberg made his debut for the Stormers at the age of 19 and has already shown his worth at senior level over the last two seasons.

His form since returning from injury has been impressive, showing a nose for the try-line along with his considerable pace and aerial skills.

John Dobson, the Director of Rugby at the Stormers, said Hartzenberg is a star on the rise, with even bigger things coming over the next three years.

“Suleiman is a player who has shown incredible natural talent from a young age, yet also has an impressive capacity to take information on and improve his game.

“He was desperately unlucky to miss out on the Junior Springbok campaign last year due to injury, but it is fantastic that his form has been recognised with a call-up to the recent Springbok alignment camps.

“We are thrilled that he has committed to our team and we know that there are even greater things to come from him and the rest of his teammates who have signed with us until 2027,” Dobson said.

Hartzenberg said that he could not be happier to sign on with the team he grew up supporting.

“As a Cape Town boy I am living my dream playing for the DHL Stormers and if the last two years are anything to go by, we all have a lot to look forward to.

“The environment here is truly special and I want to continue growing my game in the DHL Stormers system surrounded by some world-class players and coaches,” he said.
