Leicester Tigers have signed Australia international lock Blake Enever from Super Rugby side Brumbies.
The 28-year-old made his two appearances for his country in 2017.
Geordan Murphy, soon to become Tigers’ director of rugby, said: “Blake is a strong addition to the club ahead of the new season and brings with him a wealth of experience from Super Rugby.
“He’s a big, physical and hard-working player, which is what we want in our pack.”
Leicester were 11th when the Premiership season was halted in March because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Enever added: “I want to be a part of the core group that get Tigers back to where they should be and know that will only come with hard work from everybody on and off the pitch.”
Tigers have also added Melbourne Rebels’ England-born back Harry Potter to their squad.
The 22-year-old, who can play across the wing and centre positions, was born in London and moved to Australia as a child.
Leicester have not revealed the lengths of the contracts signed by the two players.
