Saracens' Matt Stevens will return home to Durban this summer after signing a deal with Natal Sharks.

The former England prop has agreed a two-year contract with the Super Rugby side, whose chief executive is his former Saracens team-mate John Smit.

And Durban-born Stevens, who made the most recent Lions' touring squad, will now end a 12-year association with the English Premiership in August to join in time for the Sharks' Currie Cup campaign.

Smit said: "Matt's versatility on both sides of the scrum and his experience makes him a great acquisition to our squad. We look forward to welcoming him to the Sharks family."

'Great signing'

Director of Rugby Jake White added: "Matt is a great signing for us.

"With our front row being unavailable during the latter part of the year, due to Springbok commitments, Matt's experience and knowledge will prove invaluable.

"The youngsters in our squad can take confidence from having a senior guy in the front row."
