Lion: Matt Stevens

Super Rugby's Sharks have confirmed the signing of Saracens and former England prop Matt Stevens on a two-year contract.

Durban-born Stevens will officially join The Sharks in August 2014, ahead of the start of the Currie Cup competition.

"Matt's versatility on both sides of the scrum and his experience makes him a great acquisition to our squad. We look forward to welcoming him to The Sharks family," said Sharks CEO John Smit.

"Matt has a burning desire to be a part of our Currie Cup campaign and is a great signing for us," said Director of Rugby Jake White.

"With our front row being unavailable during the latter part of the year, due to Springbok commitments, Matt's experience and knowledge will prove invaluable and the youngsters in our squad can take confidence from having a senior guy in the front row."
