Former Springbok front-rower Pat Cilliers has signed a loan deal with Nottingham in the Championship tournament. 

Cilliers, who originally signed with the Leicester Tigers at the beginning of this year has signed a short-term loan deal with Nottingham.

The former Stormers prop has been plagued by injury this season, so the loan deal is so he can get back to his best. 

Nottingham director of rugby Ian Costello told BBC Sport that Cilliers's experience would be beneficial to the club. 

"Pat will add a valuable level of experience that will greatly benefit our front row and will enable us to play off a solid set-piece platform."
