Cherry and Whites confirm loan signing of hooker Jaco Visagie
Gloucester Rugby can this morning confirm that South African front rower Jaco Visagie has joined the club on a short-term loan deal.

Visagie links up with the Cherry and Whites from the Blue Bulls in Super Rugby, and brings plenty of top class experience, combining power in the set piece and energy around the park.

The 26-year old made his senior debut for the Pretoria-based franchise in the 2013 Vodacom Cup, and is now a key part of the Super Rugby squad.

His arrival at Kingsholm boosts the squad’s front row stocks, following an injury to Franco Marais.

Director of Rugby David Humphreys spoke of Visagie’s arrival.

“We’re delighted to bring in someone of Jaco’s calibre to add to our squad on a short term contract, he will bring a new energy, and impetus to our group.

“He’s coming over and he’s excited to test himself within our environment and play in front of the Gloucester Rugby supporters.”
