Exeter Chiefs have bolstered their squad ahead of the new 2017/18 season with the acquisition of powerful South African lock Wilhelm van der Sluys.
The 25-year-old forward heads to Sandy Park on a one-year deal from Super Rugby side, the Kings, and becomes Rob Baxter’s sixth new addition of the summer, joining the English champions along with James Freeman, Matt Kvesic, Tom O’Flaherty, Toby Salmon and Nic White.
Commenting on his move to Devon, the 6ft 6in, 103kg forward, said: “I’m very excited to be here, I’ve only heard good things about the club and I cannot wait for the opportunity that lies in front of me.
“I’m coming to a club that is full of confidence, especially after winning the Premiership last season, so I can’t ask for a better club to join. I know it’s going to be a new challenge for me, but it’s one that I am really looking forward to.”
