TRANSFER NEWS: Warriors have signed South African Scott van Breda on a one-year deal.

The 26-year-old utility back, who predominantly plays at fullback but who can also play at flyhalf, centre, fullback or wing, becomes Director of Rugby Alan Solomons' sixth signing ahead of the 2018/19 campaign. 

Van Breda is an experienced kicker who racked up an impressive 405 points in 64 games for Eastern Province Kings between 2012 and 2015, before making the move to Western Province in 2016. 

He landed 80 points in 15 appearances for the Cape Town outfit and made three appearances for the Stormers in Super Rugby. 

Last year saw him make the move to the Northern Hemisphere to play for Jersey in the RFU Championship where he has made ten appearances this season.  

In his earlier days, Van Breda helped Eastern Province to the final of the Under-21 Provincial Championship in 2011, finishing as top points-scorer in Group B of the 2011 competition as he accrued 108 points in just eight appearances, before landing a mammoth 90 points in just four games in 2012 as they won the tournament.

Van Breda made his debut for Eastern Province in the 2012 Vodacom Cup and finished as their top-scorer in the tournament while also playing ten times for the Currie Cup side which won the First Division title that same year.

He soon made his Super Rugby debut for the Kings in 2013 before helping them to the semifinals of the Vodacom Cup as he finished as their top points-scorer once again. He also helped them earn promotion to the Currie Cup Premier Division after landing 22 points in a memorable 32-29 win in the semifinals of the competition. 

"I'm excited to make the move to Sixways to try and test myself in the Premiership," said Van Breda. "I've worked with Alan Solomons before, he is a fantastic coach and I'm looking forward to linking up with him once again."

Solomons added: "Scott is a versatile rugby player and a very good goal-kicker. It's a great opportunity for him to test himself at the top level and I have no doubt he will be an asset to the side."
