English second division side Ealing Trailfinders have added another South African to their ranks, acquiring the services of former Lions and Southern Kings lock Bobby de Wee.

De Wee joins former SA Under-20 international forward Abongile Nonkontwana at the West London club, who joined in September last year.

The 26-year-old De Wee was one of a plethora of players that were laid off after the Kings folded last year and went into voluntary liquidation.

On Friday, Trailfinders announced the signing on their twitter page.

De Wee's mission starts immediately, after he was named the starting No 4 against Saracens on Saturday.
