Saracens have announced their second signing in as many days with the recruitment of Nick Fenton-Wells from the Stormers.
Fenton-Wells can play at blindside and has featured in this season's Super Rugby campaign. He will arrive at Sarries after the current tournament has come to an end in the southern hemisphere.
Fenton-Wells will vie with the likes of Jacques Burger for a spot in the Sarries side and director of rugby Mark McCall is looking forward to welcoming him.
"We have been following Nick's progress for some time," McCall said. "He has the heart of a lion, and we are delighted he has decided to join us."
Elsewhere in the Aviva Premiership, Gloucester have announced that managing director Ken Nottage has opted to leave the club. He has spent 13 years at Kingsholm and will depart Kingsholm before the start of next season to become chief executive of the Three Counties Agricultural Society in Malvern.
