Struggling Premiership side Worcester Warriors have completed the signings of centre Andy Symons and second-row Shay Kerry.
Symons, formerly of Tasman Makos, trained with Leicester Tigers last summer and appeared for the Premiership side during the 2012 domestic Sevens Series.
The 22-year-old's favourite position is inside centre though he can also play at fly-half.
Meanwhile, 18-year-old Kerry joins the Warriors academy having also spent time in New Zealand rugby, representing West Harbour U20s shortly after leaving school.
Warriors Director of Rugby, Dean Ryan, was pleased with his two latest recruits.
"I am delighted to welcome Andy Symons and Shay Kerry to Sixways," Ryan told the Warriors website.
"They are both young players, who are hungry to impress
"They are the sort of individuals we are trying to develop at Sixways as we build for the future."
