The 30-year-old lock has five seasons of Premiership experience with Leicester Tigers, London Irish and Newcastle Falcons.
The 6ft 6in South African started out with the Golden Lions, before moving to France to play with Mont de Marsan in the Top 14 in 2012.
The 120kg forward represented South Africa Under 20s in the 2010 Junior World Championship, but he is also qualified to play for England and Portugal.
