Jebb Sinclair has joined South African Super 15 club Stormers on three months loan from London Irish.
The versatile 26-year-old Canadian international has been signed as loose forward cover.
He will be available for Stormers' next four games and will then play for Canada in the June international window before returning to the Cape Town club for their remaining three league fixtures.
He will not be eligible, though, to play any knock-out games should the Stormers qualify for the play-offs.
London Irish director of rugby Brian Smith said: "This is a great opportunity for Jebb to gain some valuable experience playing in the Super 15.
"He is a strong ball carrier and a player with great physicality on the field.
"We believe his style of play will fit well with the Stormers and he’ll be a great asset to help them through the rest of their season."
