Saracens have secured the services of yet another South African with Lions hooker Ethienne Reynecke signing with the Watford club.
The 27-year-old has played second fiddle to Willie Wepener for several years, and given that is unlikely to change has sought to explore other options.
Saracens’ incoming Director of Rugby Brendan Venter was notably pleased with the acquisition.
‘He’s a player who comes to us with Super 14 experience and his signing adds more depth to our front row. We’re delighted to have secured his services.’
