The dynamic Dayimani has made a big impression since returning to the city of his birth in 2021 and will have plenty of opportunity to express himself further in a Stormers jersey.

He played an important role in the Stormers claiming the inaugural Vodacom United Rugby Championship title last season and has built further on that this season with a number of top performances at the back of the scrum.

A loose forward with considerable athletic ability, Dayimani does not fit any mould and brings his own flair to everything he does on the field for the Stormers.

Coach John Dobson said that it is great to know that Dayimani will form part of the future growth of the team.

“Hacjivah is a special player who brings something completely unique to our team, so we couldn’t be happier to have him extend his contract with us,” the Stormers boss said.

“He keeps everyone on their toes on and off the field and is already a crowd favourite at the Cape Town Stadium, so we expect that to grow even further in the seasons ahead.”

“There is still so much that we can achieve together and I really want to be part of that, so I couldn’t be happier to extend my contract,” Dayimani concluded.
