Aphiwe Dyantyi has penned a two-year deal with the Vodacom Bulls which will see the speedster turn up for the herd until June 2026.

“This feels like a second opportunity,” says the 29-year-old Nkondlo native.

“It will be good to be in an environment like the one the Vodacom Bulls have, almost very familiar considering that I was down the highway during the start of my career.”

He Adds: “I spent over 10 years in Gauteng, so it is familiar territory and this move feels like me coming home. I am closer to family and friends, a support structure that has been so important for me over the years.

“I hope to enjoy my time with the Loftus family and am thankful for the opportunity Jake (White) and Edgar (Rathbone) have given me” he concludes.

The utility back is no stranger to the international circuit having impressed back in the 2018 season for Jukskei rivals, the Emirates Lions, a season which earned him his Springbok cap where he went on to dot down six tries from thirteen tests on his way to winning the 2018 World Rugby Breakthrough Player of the Year.

The Dale College alumni has played at flyhalf, outside centre, fullback and now ranks among the top wingers on the park.
