Bayonne, France - French Top 14 strugglers Bayonne on Thursday signed South African props Gert Muller, from Agen, and Janse van Rensburg, who had been playing with the Lions in his domestic competition.

Muller, 27, arrived at Agen in 2010, but has played little this season following ankle surgery while Van Rensburg, also 27, has played 47 times for Lions in the Super 15.

Bayonne have been busily recruiting with next season in mind.

Fiji winger Saimoni Vaka, flanker Jean Monribot, Argentine full-back Martin Bustos Moyano, Kiwi full-back Stephen Brett and scrum-half Mathieu Belie have also been brought on board. - Sapa-AFP
