Scarlets have signed former Springboks prop Werner Kruger on a three-year contract from next season.

The 31-year-old Bulls forward has played 113 Super Rugby matches, and made four appearances for South Africa in 2011-12.

The move follows the news on Tuesday that Wales tight-head Rhodri Jones was joining Ospreys from Scarlets.

“Werner will further strengthen us at the set piece and will bring vast experience,” said head coach Wayne Pivac.
