The 29-year-old lock’s departure is another major blow for the South African franchise, given they have already lost the services of locks Walt Steenkamp, Sintu Majezi and JP du Preez.
Born in Bloemfontein, Wegner has loads of experience. He played in France for Stade Francais and enjoyed a stint at Japanese club for Toyota Verblitz.
