South African rugby player Clinton Swart signed for Super Rugby side Vodacom Bulls after leaving Japanese Top League outfit Toyota Verblitz.

“The Blue Bulls Company can confirm that 27-year-old Clinton Swart will join the Vodacom Bulls effective immediately,” a statement on the club’s website read.

Swart will link up with familiar faces at the Pretoria-based franchise having worked under Bulls Director of Rugby Jake White and played with veteran winger Gio Aplon. Swart previously played for the Bulls at Under-21 level in 2012.

“His (Swart) signing will add immense value to the backs while his ability and experience will allow the backline more room to express themselves,” the statement added.
