Springbok 2015 World Cup scrumhalf Rudy Paige has joined French Pro D2 team RC Vannes, his agency Le Cap Sports announced on Friday.

The former Bulls No 9 played 13 times for South Africa since making his debut as a reserve against the USA at the 2015 Rugby World Cup in the UK under then-Bok head coach Heyneke Meyer.

The 31-year-old's last Test came in 2017 against Italy in a 35-6 win at the Stadio Euganeo, in Padua, under ex-coach Allister Coetzee.

Paige recently played for Japan's Sunwolves, where he formed a halfback partnership with South African flyhalf Garth April, after a PRO14 stint with the Cheetahs in 2019.
