Leeds have signed Argentina lock Pablo Bouza from Harlequins.
The 33-year-old replaces Chris Murphy, who has retired from professional rugby to start a new career as a land surveyor.
Bouza has been capped 33 times and played for Argentina at the 2003 World Cup and against the British & Irish Lions last summer.
He only featured five times in Harlequins’ promotion season last year but Leeds director of rugby Stuart Lancaster believes he can help the Tykes make an immediate return to the Guinness Premiership.
"Pablo is a vastly experienced international second row who will be a great addition to our squad for next season," said Lancaster.
