Talking about the injury cover signing, Ackermann said: “We’ve got Jaco Visagie. He’s just arrived on a short-term deal, helping us whilst we’ve got this injury list, especially since James [Hanson] got injured on the weekend.
“We’re excited, I’ve always rated him as a quality player when I was in South Africa and he’s a good team guy.’’
