The South African international No.8 signed a long-term contract at the Ricoh Arena at the end of the 2017/18 season.

This came after an earlier highly successful three-month loan spell in Coventry during which Carr’s explosive pace and carrying skills saw him claim four tries in 11 outings.

These included a memorable long-range effort at Harlequins plus a superb finish in front of a big derby-day crowd against Leicester.

Carr, who has gained five Springbok caps since making his debut against Italy in 2014, has been an integral part of the Stormers back row since 2012.

In addition to making over 80 Super Rugby appearances for the Cape Town-based franchise, he has been a key part of Western Province’s Currie Cup line-up for the last seven years during which time his team have regularly contended for South Africa’s leading domestic title.

His early career was spent at Cape Town’s famous Bishop’s School, after which he won South Africa caps at under 20 and A level.
