    Cape Town - The Sunwolves have completed the signings of centre Rene Ranger and flyhalf Phil Burleigh ahead of the upcoming Super Rugby campaign.

    Ranger, capped six times by New Zealand, joins once-capped Scotland international Burleigh in returning to the southern hemisphere competition.

    The former All Black is currently playing Mitre 10 Cup rugby for Northland and has been snapped up by Sunwolves head coach Tony Brown.

    Ranger shot to fame at the Blues where his powerful carries made him an exciting watch.

    Burleigh, meanwhile, is a former Highlanders centre who moved to Edinburgh and played flyhalf.

    The Sunwolves have also re-signed hooker Jaba Bregvadze and flyhalf Hayden Parker and kick-off their season against the Sharks in February.
