Paris - Stade Français have confirmed the signing of Springbok back row Willem Alberts who will join the club after the Rugby World Cup.

The Top 14 champions have not brought in many players this off-season, generally prioritising quality over quantity, as Alberts joins Will Genia in the French capital.

Alberts arrives from the Sharks on a three-year deal and will join a back row which already features Sergio Parisse, Raphael Lakafia and Antoine Burban, while promising youngster Sekou Macalou also arrived over the off-season from Massy.

The 31-year-old made his Springbok debut back in 2010 and has scored seven tries in 32 Tests.

He was this week named in Heyneke Meyer's South Africa squad for the Rugby Championship and is capable of playing both at No 8 and flank.
