Cape Town - Highly-rated loose forward Hacjivah Dayimani has extended his contract with the Lions.

The extension was announced by the franchise on Friday, but at the time of publishing, the exact length of the extension is unclear.

The 21-year-old is considered one of the brightest young prospects in South African rugby at the moment and his commitment is great news for the Lions ahead of the 2020 Super Rugby campaign.  

There was more good news for the franchise with scrumhalf Dillon Smit and hooker Pieter Jansen also extending their stays. 

The Golden Lions, meanwhile, are in Currie Cup action on Sunday when they host the Sharks at Ellis Park. 

Kick-off in that match is at 14:00
