French Top 14 club Racing 92 have confirmed the signing of a Springbok World Cup hero as one of six new arrivals for next season.
Warrick Gelant, who earlier this month won the Vodacom United Rugby Championship with the Stormers, will link up with Racing from the start of the 2022-23 campaign.
The 27-year-old has earned nine Test caps for the Boks – the last coming during two pool matches during their 2019 Rugby World Cup triumph.
He since been recalled for the July series against Wales, the Rugby Championship and the end-of-year tour.
Racing have also recruited two Fijian internationals from Brive – loose forward Kitione Kamikamica and hooker Peniami Narisia – and a third, wing Asaeli Tuivuaka, from Parma.
The Parisian side have also signed New Zealand-born lock Veikoso Poloniati from Super Rugby side Moana Pasifika and French hooker Janick Tarrit from second-division side Nevers.
Racing finished sixth in the regular Top 14 season before losing to Bordeaux-Begles in the playoffs.
