PETER GRANT STORMERS SUPER RUGBY

Heading to France: Peter Grant

Promoted Top 14 side La Rochelle announced on Friday the signing of former All Black Jason Eaton along with Waratahs wing Alofa Alofa and ex-Springbok Peter Grant on two-year deals.

31-year-old lock Eaton has 17 caps for the All Blacks. He played 80 matches for the Hurricanes during a seven-year spell before joining NTT Shining Arcs in Japan last season.

29-year-old Grant, who has five caps for the Springboks, recently played his 100th match for the Stormers.

Having made his Super Rugby debut just three months ago, the highly-rated Alofa has impressed since switching codes. The 23-year-old New Zealand-born wing bagged a try of note against the Force in the 'Tahs' opening win of their campaign back in February.
