TRANSFER NEWS: The mass exodus of senior players from the Bulls have an additional member.

Hooker Jacobus Visagie has joined Toulouse as World Cup cover.

Visagie, 27, has signed a short-term contract as has Japan international Takeshi Hino to deal with the absence of Peato Mauvaka, who is part of France’s squad for the tournament.

Additionally, captain Julien Marchand, as well as his brother Guillaume, are suffering from injuries.

Visage’s arrival in the south of France had been delayed due to administrative problems, which included an issue with his visa.

The record 20-time French champions begin the defence of their title with a trip to Bordeaux-Begles on Saturday.

The World Cup begins on September 20 with hosts Japan facing Russia and the final will be held on November 2.

Visagie departure from Pretoria comes in the wake of confirmation that players like Handré Pollard (Montpellier, France), Jesse Kriel (Eagles, Japan), Lodewyk de Jager (Sale Sharks, England), Rudolph Snyman (Heat, Japan), Jason Jenkins (Eagles, Japan), Hanro Liebenberg (Leicester Tigers, England), Eli Snyman (Treviso, Italy) and Hendré Stassen (Stade Français, France).
