South Africa lock Eben Etzebeth and New Zealand winger Nehe Milner-Skudder will join Toulon at the end of the 2019 Rugby World Cup, the club’s president Mourad Boudjellal announced on Thursday.

Etzebeth, who has 75 Springboks caps, has signed a two-year deal with the Top 14 outfit and 2015 World Cup winner Milner-Skudder will feature for the side for three seasons.

At club level, the 25-year-old has been a mainstay at the Stormers also.

Milner-Skudder started his career at Manawatu and has spent the past three seasons at Super Rugby side Hurricanes.

The 27-year-old has earned 13 caps for the All Blacks thus far.

Other internationals in Argentina back-row Facundo Isa and France outside-half Anthony Belleau have extended their contracts until 2022 with the club.
