Swindon have swooped to sign talented Danish youngster Mikkel B Andersen.
Andersen was on the radar of rival SGB Premiership clubs after alerting them to his availability following his apprenticeship in his home country.
Robins boss Alun Rossiter said: "Both Hans Nielsen and our former skipper Hans Andersen speak highly of him.
"We're pleased to welcome him to Swindon, he's another fresh face to the side who I expect to improve as the season goes on. We get him as a club asset, too, so I'm pleased to have him on board for a number of reasons."
Meanwhile, Peterborough have snapped up hot property Jack Holder - and told him 2017 is his time to shine.
Promoter Ged Rathbone believes the Panthers are the perfect club for the Australian - younger brother of former world champion, Chris - to continue his emergence in the sport.
Rathbone said: "I fully believe that 2017 will be the year in which Jack makes a big name for himself, and I'm absolutely delighted he will be doing it at Peterborough.
"He is a terrific young talent who has already shown his liking for the East of England Showground with some excellent performances here in the last couple of years.
"He was outstanding when helping Plymouth to win the Premier League Fours last summer and has piled up the points in his league visits as well."
