Date published: May 17 2017

Brive have announced the signatures of four new players ahead of the 2017/2018 Top 14 season, including three props.

Félix le Bourhis joins from relegated Bayonne, with the winger/centre having previously spent a large part of his career with Bordeaux-Bègles. The 29-year-old has been capped once by France, back in 2014 against Australia.

Top 14 winner Julien Brugnaut joins from Racing 92 with plenty of experience at 35, having played for Montpellier, Dax and Munster before joining Racing.

The two remaining props include Samoa international James Johnston, who arrives from Worcester Warriors, and Na'ama Leleimalefaga who signs from Montpellier.

Brive boss Nicolas Godignon said: "We are very satisfied with all the players who will join us in the offseason and extensions of contracts signed in recent months.

"We will be able to rely on a group of talented and experienced players. "
