Leinster have snapped up Hurricanes' Kiwi scrum-half Jamison Gibson-Park and pinned down Hayden Triggs for another year as Leo Cullen beefs up his squad for next season.
Gibson-Park will link up with the province for pre-season training on 1 July. The 24-year-old has played for the Maori All Blacks and was part of their squad that toured England in 2012.
His compatriot Triggs has extended his contract and the lock will remain with the club for the 2016/17 season.
"We are very happy to have secured two key signings ahead of next season," said Cullen.
"Jamison, for a young player, has a wealth of experience behind him already and was an ever-present in the Blues team last season in Super Rugby before signing with the Hurricanes.
"I think he will bring great competition to an area where we are well serviced with the likes of Nick McCarthy and Charlie Rock pushing the senior players hard already.
"Hayden has been influential since joining us earlier this season and we are probably only now seeing the best of him as he unfortunately suffered that ankle injury against Bath in the Champions Cup.
"In 14 games for us to-date we have seen the leadership that Hayden brings to this team as well as his excellent work ethic with and without the ball.”
Cullen also confirmed that Leinster hope to finalise the remaining squad positions and the full Academy roster for next season in the coming weeks.
Leinster trounced Treviso 50-19 in their final Pro12 game to ensure they will have home advantage in next week's play-off semi-final against Ulster.
Les Kiss's charges secured their place in the semis with a 46-26 win against Ospreys at the Liberty Stadium, and will travel to the RDS under the Friday night lights for a mouthwatering showdown.
