Northampton Saints have signed former South Africa captain Corne Krige.
Flanker Krige, 29, has been released by Western Province and the former Stormers captain will now join up with the Saints' squad ahead of their
pre-season friendly against Edinburgh at Franklin's Gardens.
Krige captained the Springboks on 18 occasions including the infamous clash at Twickenham in 2002 which England won 53-3.
He won a total of 39 caps, making his last appearance in the 2003 World Cup quarter-final defeat to New Zealand.
