Nyakane, who was part of the 2019 Rugby World Cup-winning Springbok team, has played 54 Tests in the green and gold, and boasts no fewer than 82 caps for the Bulls over the past six years since his arrival in Tshwane.

Nyakane is renowned for his versatility after having proven himself as equally adept at both loosehead and tighthead prop – positions he has played both at franchise level and at international level.

TREVOR NYAKANE SERVED THE BULLS WITH DISTINCTION

Bulls director of rugby, Jake White, said on Nyakane’s departure: “Trevor has been a colossal figure, both on and off the field, for the Bulls in the years of great service he has spent with us. He has been an influential member of our squad, contributing both as a leader and imparting his vast knowledge on our younger players.

“He has served both the union and South African rugby with great pride and distinction over the years. He now has an opportunity to continue being a great ambassador for the game of rugby in his new, exciting chapter at Racing 92.

“We would like to thank Trevor for his dedication, commitment and lasting memories which he leaves us all at the Bulls. We wish him the very best for this next phase of his illustrious career. Au revoir, Trevor!”
