Date published: December 27 2016

Lyon have announced the signing of former New Zealand and Hurricanes wing Hosea Gear on a contract until the end of this season.

The 32-year-old, who also played Super Rugby for the Highlanders and Chiefs, has already donned Toulouse and Clermont colours in the Top 14.

Gear, an imposing 103kg speedster who won 14 caps for New Zealand between 2008 and 2012, will bolster Lyon in their top flight survival bid.
