Ospreys bolster ranks with signing of South African Brian Mujati

Ospreys have signed former South Africa prop Brian Mujati on a short-term contract until the end of the season.

The 32-year-old tighthead, who has had spells in the Aviva Premiership with Northampton and Sale, will provide cover at the Welsh region, with Dmitri Arhip and Ma'afu Fia injured and Rhodri Jones on international duty with Wales for the RBS 6 Nations.

Ospreys head coach Steve Tandy said: "This is an important signing for us given the injury situation with Dmitri and Ma'afu.

"Our performances this season have put us in a really strong position, but we still have eight PRO12 games to go, and a Challenge Cup quarter-final in April.

"Brian has proven quality at the top level and will add so much experience to the squad, particularly over the coming weeks when we are missing our international players and carrying so many injuries."
