To France: Deon Fourie

Newly promoted Top 14 side Lyon have confirmed the signing of Stormers hooker Deon Fourie on a two-year contract.

The 26-year-old, who has featured at hooker and flanker for the Cape Town-based franchise, will join the club as they return to the French top flight.

Fourie, who has never been capped by South Africa, is one of a number of impressive signings joining Lyon for next season.

Pierrick Gunther, George Smith, Jerome Porical, Stephen Brett and Emmanuel Felsina will all be part of the squad coached by Tim Lane and Olivier Azam.

Lyon have also announced the arrival of Scott Wisemantel as assistant coach. Wisemantel has previously worked with Japan and the Waratahs.
