Durban - The Sharks have confirmed the signing of former England international and current Saracens prop Matt Stevens, on a two-year deal on Tuesday.

Sport24 earlier reported that Stevens may have been lured to the Durban-based franchise in time for their Super Rugby campaign, but it has emerged that Durban-born Stevens will officially join the Sharks in August 2014, ahead of the start of the Currie Cup competition.

Confirming the signing, Sharks CEO, John Smit said: “Matt’s versatility on both sides of the scrum and his experience makes him a great acquisition to our squad. We look forward to welcoming him to The Sharks family.”

“Matt has a burning desire to be a part of our Currie Cup campaign and is a great signing for us," added director of rugby, Jake White.

“With our front row being unavailable during the latter part of the year, due to Springbok commitments, Matt’s experience and knowledge will prove invaluable and the youngsters in our squad can take confidence from having a senior guy in the front row.”
