The Blue Bulls Company is delighted to confirm, our worst kept secret yet 😊, the signing of Springbok utility back Johan Goosen.
The 28-year-old flyhalf, who can hold his own at centre and fullback, is a product of Grey College in Bloemfontein and it was in the City of Roses where he began his professional career, representing the Toyota Free State Cheetahs, Toyota Cheetahs and the Emerging Cheetahs.
Goosen is a talented attacking flyhalf with a powerful boot and natural instinct with these attributes earning him call ups to the Junior Springboks (2011), the Springbok XV (2014) and the Springboks shortly thereafter.
Goosen has sharpened his trade in France over the last several seasons, turning out for Racing Metro and Montpellier before being lured back to South Africa. He will link up with the Vodacom Bulls on 1 July 2021.
“We are definitely excited for Johan’s imminent arrival in Pretoria and look forward to his contribution. He has consistently performed at the highest level since his early days and his experience will bode well for our younger backs while providing us with attacking opportunities when he takes the field,” said Vodacom Bulls Director of Rugby, Jake White.
“I’m excited to be returning to my homeland and representing the Vodacom Bulls who are rising in strength day by day. Rugby in Pretoria has an exciting future and I’m grateful to be part of it,” said Goosen.
