The 28-year-old flyhalf, who can also play at centre and fullback, is a product of Grey College in Bloemfontein. 

He went on to represent the Free State Cheetahs, Cheetahs and the Emerging Cheetahs.

His performance in Bloemfontein earned him call ups to the Junior Springboks in 2011, the Springbok XV in 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 Bulls on 1 July. 

“We are definitely excited for Johan’s eminent 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 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.
