Transfer News: Gloucester confirm the signing of forward

Johan Ackermann has confirmed the signing of Blue Bulls hooker Jaco Visagie.

The hooker, who is 26, will join up with Gloucester after signing the paperwork this week on a short-term deal into the new year.

His arrival at Kingsholm boosts the squad’s front row stocks, following an injury to Franco Marais.

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.’’
