Agen - South Africa international scrum-half Enrico Januarie has signed for French Top 14 newboys Agen for next season, the club said on Friday.

The 35-year-old helped La Rochelle top the regular season standings and reach the Top 14 semi-finals this year, but was only a substitute in last weekend's 18-15 defeat to Toulon.

Januarie, who has been visibly carrying a little extra weight in recent seasons, first came to France in 2011 when he joined Lyon.

The 47-time capped half-back, who had previously played for Golden Lions, Western Province and Ospreys in Wales, has signed a one year deal with an option for another 12 months.

He is one of four new additions to the Agen squad as they bid to build a side capable of surviving in the Top 14 - they were relegated at the first time of asking in 2015/2016.

Hooker Loick Jammes, 22, joins from relegated Grenoble, Georgian prop Gagi Bazadze, 24, arrives from Montpellier and wing Nicolas Metge is leaving fellow promoted side Oyonnax to head to Agen.
