Connacht have signed former Australia U20 fly-half David Horwitz from the Rebels for next season.
The 23-year-old spent three years at the Waratahs prior to moving to Melbourne this year, starting all but one of their games during the 2017 campaign.
Horwitz becomes the second Australia international to join Connacht in four days after Wallabies centre Kyle Godwin also agreed a move to Galway.
"Connacht are really ambitious about their plans for the future and I share that ambition and hope to contribute to bringing further success to the province," said Horwitz .
"I am looking forward to focusing more on my favoured position of out-half with Connacht and joining my future team mates at the end of the current Super Rugby season."
Connacht chief executive Wllie Ruane added: "David is a quality out-half who has also built up considerable experience at centre.
"His Super Rugby credentials are obvious having featured heavily for the Warathas last season. He will be another strong addition to Connacht and we look forward to his arrival next season."
