Top 14 club Oyonnax have announced the arrival of World Cup-winning scrum-half Piri Weepu ahead of next season.

The 31-year-old former All Black will leave relegation-bound Aviva Premiership strugglers London Welsh, having signed a two-year deal. They have yet to win a game this season.

Weepu, who has 71 Test caps and previously played for the Hurricane and Blues in Super Rugby, is set to arrive in the Rhône-Alpes region on July 1.
