Castres - Beaten Top 14 finalists Castres on Thursday have unveiled ex-All Black winger Sitiveni Sivivatu and five other players for the 2014/15 season.

The 32-year-old Sivivatu, capped 45 times by New Zealand, signed a three-year contract, having spent the last three seasons at Top 14 rivals Clermont.

Three players were signed from Montpellier: Scottish No 8 Johnnie Beattie (three years), centre Thomas Combezou (one-year loan) and Kiwi prop Paea Fa'anunu (two years).

Prop Yohan Montes (Toulouse) and fly-half/fullback Julien Dumora (Lyon) were also snapped up, both on two-year deals.
