WP's Bok heads to England
TRANSFER NEWS: English Premiership club Wasps have signed Springboks and Western Province loose forward Nizaam Carr on a three-month contract as injury cover.
Having helped Province win the Currie Cup Final on Saturday, Carr is due to join Wasps this week to provide extra depth following back row injuries at the club.
Carr, who can play flank or No.8, has won five caps for the Springboks.
Speaking about the short-term signing, Wasps' Director of Rugby Dai Young said: "We are pleased to be able to bring a player with international experience like Nizaam into the squad to bolster our back row options.
"Having lost Alex Rieder to a dislocated shoulder and with Ashley Johnson no longer being a back row option due to injuries at hooker, we have become pretty threadbare in that area.
"Nizaam has a strong reputation for his defence, athleticism and linking play and I’m sure he will prove himself a valuable addition to the squad even on a short-term basis. We look forward to welcoming him to the club."
