Bakkies extends Toulon stay

Springbok lock Bakkies Botha has extended his contract at Toulon until June 2015, the French Top 14 side announced on their website on Tuesday.

The 33-year-old, capped 76 times for South Africa, has impressed since he arrived at the Stade Mayol in December, 2011 with the side rising to the top of the elite top division.

Botha played for the Springboks at last year's World Cup in New Zealand, but he was not included in new coach Heyneke Meyer's touring squad for November's test matches in Europe.
