The club have won the Japanese Top league four times and already have the likes of Richard Kahui and Cooper Vuna on their books.

Twenty-eight-year-old Chiefs flanker Latimer has been with the Chiefs since 2007 after making his Super Rugby debut for the Crusaders in 2006.

Speaking on the Lupus site Latimer said, “I am very much looking forward to being able to join the Toshiba Brave Lupus because it is one of the strongest team in Japan, I will do my best to make it stronger. I am very happy that I had an opportunity like this.”

Latimer has won five All Black caps and has captained the New Zealand Maori team.

Sharks back Frans Steyn can play at fullback, centre or flyhalf and is known for his big kicking abilities. This will not be the first time that Steyn has left South Africa as between 2009 and 2012 Steyn played in France for Racing Metro.

Steyn returned from France in 2012 and helped the Sharks win the Currie Cup title in 2013 and has won 53 caps for the Springboks. He was not selected for the 2013 end of year tour.

“To play for the Toshiba Brave Lupus is a great honour,” said Steyn on the Lupus site.

“I want to study Japanese culture and language, and more than anything I hope to help the Toshiba Brave Lupus win.”

Both players will complete their Super Rugby commitments before leaving for Japan.

    Ek het vir ‘n ruk in Kempton gebly, en as jy saam met boksburg ouens kuier maak hulle “benoni” grappe en die benoni ouens maak “boksburg” grappe.

    Jis jou werk is seker moeilik daar, het die ander manne al hul pc’s geupgrade na Win XP toe?

    Ek werk al vir myself sedert 1989, eers as Prokurower en nou as IT boffin en besigheidsman met so klompie verskillende ysters in verskillende vure.

    Kyk, ek het mos ‘n spesialis sagteware produk geskrywe vir Prokureurs, so ek bemark, onderhou, opgradeer en verbeter dit heeltyd… meestal van my kantoor af.

    Die gebruikers betaal my ook ‘n maandelikse subskripsie per rekenaar wat die sagteware gebruik.

    Dan purpose-build en verkoop ek op bestelling rekenaars, notebooks, printers en diesmeer sommer so vir die lekkerte.
