Montpellier - Former New Zealand international wing Rene Ranger and South African centre Robert Ebersohn on Monday arrived to significantly bolster Top 14 highflyers Montpellier's ranks.

Ranger, 27, capped six times by the All Blacks but who called time on his international career to play for Montpellier, signed a two-year deal with the southern French side.

Ebersohn, 24, arrived earlier on Monday while lock Sitaleki Timani, 27, is set to join them after Australia's final tour match against Wales on November 30.

"The team is gelling, but from experience the good players easily integrate," said coach Fabien Galthie.

Ranger and Ebersohn could make their debuts for Montpellier, who are second in the table because of a poorer points difference than leaders Toulon, against defending champions Castres on November 23.
