NEWS: South Africa international scrumhalf Enrico Januarie has signed for French Top 14 new boys Agen for next season.

The 35-year-old helped La Rochelle top the regular season standings and reach the Top 14 semifinals this year, but was only a substitute in last weekend's 15-18 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 scrumhalf, who had previously played for the 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.
