Scarlets sign Springbok forward
Hottie Louw
Louw has been a mainstay of the Clermont-Auvergne pack
The Scarlets have continued their overseas recruitment drive by signing Springbok lock Hottie Louw from Clermont-Auvergne on a two-year deal.

The 29-year-old ex-Stormers forward has been a mainstay of the French side's pack since joining the club in 2003.

Louw won the first of his three South Africa caps against Wales in 2002.

"We are delighted to announce Hottie will be joining us in the summer," Scarlets chief executive Stuart Gallacher told the club's website.

Louw said the Llanelli club's reputation helped attract him to Stradey Park.

"I'm looking forward to joining the Scarlets," said the South African.

"The name of Llanelli is known throughout the rugby playing world and I'm looking forward to putting on the famous shirt."

His recruitment follows the Scarlets' signings of All Black prop Dave Hewett and Welsh-qualified New Zealand lock David Duley.
