The 27-year-old, who earlier this month won the United Rugby Championship with the Cape Town-based Stormers franchise, has made nine appearances for the Springboks, the last coming during two pool matches at the 2019 World Cup.

The Stormers bid farewell to the stalwart via Twitter – thanking Boogie for the incredible memories.

Racing have also recruited two Fijian internationals from Brive in the shape of back-rower Kitione Kamikamica and hooker Peniami Narisia and a third, wing Asaeli Tuivuaka, from Parma.

The Parisian side have also signed New Zealand-born second-row Veikoso Poloniati from Super Rugby side Moana Pasifika and French hooker Janick Tarrit from second division side Nevers.
