Saracens have signed South African utility back Tiger Bax on a deal until the end of the season.

The 22-year-old has previously played for Western Province and Stormers.

He will line up for the Saracens A team, Saracens Storm, at outside centre in a friendly match with Northampton Wanderers on Monday.

"It's a fantastic opportunity for me. Everybody in South African rugby is aware of what's happening at Saracens," he told the club website.

"And I am determined to take this opportunity."

Prop Deon Carstens will also feature against Wanderers as he steps up his recovery following shoulder surgery.
