South African scrumhalf Conrad Hoffman and flyhalf Lionel Cronje have both signed two-year contracts with the Brumbies.
Former SA Under-20 playmaker Cronje, who has played for Western Province, the Bulls and the Lions in his short career, confirmed the news on Twitter on Monday.
The 24-year-old, who can play both flyhalf and inside centre, is likely to compete with Wallabies duo of Matt Toomua and Christian Lealiifano for a spot in the starting line-up.
