England Saxons fly-half comes out of retirement to join Scarlets

South African international second row Juandre Kruger and England Saxons fly-half Ryan Lamb have signed for Pro14 side Scarlets on short-term deals.

The experienced pair will arrive on short-term deals as the Welsh region look to add to their cover at a time when they have 14 players away on Rugby World Cup duty.

“Not only outstanding players with vast experience, Juandre and Ryan are also top men who are driven to learn and give to the environment they are playing in,” Scarlets head coach Brad Mooar said.

Kruger, capped 17 times by South Africa has signed until the end of November when the 34-year old will join Super Rugby side Bulls.

Lamb has played for Gloucester, London Irish, Northampton, Leicester, Worcester Warriors and La Rochelle while also representing England Saxons.

“That combination makes them the perfect players to complement our squad over the RWC period. We are thrilled to welcome them and their families to the Scarlets.”
