John Schwalger to join French Club after Hurricanes campaign ends

9:47 am on 28 April 2011

Prop John Schwalger will join French rugby club Agen after the 27-year-old's Super Rugby campaign ends with the Hurricanes.

Agen, who until recently were embroiled in a relegation catfight, also announced the signing of Australian lock Pat O'Connor and say they are talking to four other unnamed players, including two current internationals who will join after this year's World Cup.

Schwalger was capped once by the All Blacks.

Agen have won the national championship eight times although their last crown goes back to 1988.
