Saracens have strengthened for next season with the signing of 6'6" lock Mouritz Botha.

The 27-year-old second rower has been an integral member of the Bedford Blues pack in National League One in recent campaigns.

He has made 57 appearances for the club since joining in 2006 and earned a call-up to the East Midlands side for the traditional Mobbs Memorial match against the Barbarians earlier this season.

New Saracens director of rugby Brendan Venter said: "His attitude is fantastic and Mouritz has all the attributes to make an excellent contribution next season."
