Christ, thought he was mid-late 30s

Lot of money, but he's one of the greats, so why not?

Brad Thorn, Fourie du Preez, George Smith, Jerry Collins...

They can only field 3 foreign players at the same time.

The Wild Knights have an excellent squad and this should only improve their chances for a repeat.
