Leicester Tigers have signed South African Super Rugby duo EW Viljoen and Hanro Liebenberg and back-rower Jordan Coghlan from Nottingham.

Tigers have recruited utility back Viljoen from Stormers and back-rower Liebenberg, 23, from Bulls while Coghlan, 26, joins after three seasons in the Championship.

Viljoen, 24, moves to Leicester after featuring 28-times for the Stormers.

"EW adds a lot to our outside-back stocks," said boss Geordan Murphy.

"EW is a versatile, skilful and exciting player to have as part of our group.

"Hanro is an aggressive ball-carrier and a physical player around the field, in the best traditions of South African back-row players."

Irish-born Coghlan, also a back-rower, played for Leinster and Munster before joining Nottingham.

Murphy added: "Jordan is a physical, athletic and experienced player who we are looking forward to welcoming in to the club."
