Montpellier-bound: Tom Donnelly

Montpellier have confirmed their recruits ahead of the new Top 14 season, including the arrival of Blues lock Tom Donnelly.

The 32-year-old former All Black lock is one of eight new faces at the ambitious French club.

The biggest names on the list are ex-Wallabies skipper Ben Mowen from the Brumbies and French international wing Benjamin Fall, who joins last season's losing semi-finalists from Racing Metro.

French international prop David Attoub arrives from Stade Franšais along with Racing-Metro loose forward Antoine Battut.

Fijian loose forward Akapusi Qera comes in after a short stint at Toulouse to join Fijian Sevens sensation Samisoni Viriviri.

Promising Tarbes scrum-half Teddy Iribaren completes the list.
