Canterbury have added a combination of experience, power and youth to their squad ahead of the new season.
Hooker Nathan Morris, lock Dave Irvine and back row Cameron Murray have all joined the National 2 East club.
Former England under-20 player Morris, who moves from Blackheath, has top-class experience at Wasps and London Welsh. He will also take on a new role as the club’s Head of Player Pathway.
Irvine returns to The Marine Travel Ground after a brief loan spell with Canterbury last season when he was at Tonbridge Juddians.
Scot Murray arrives fresh from training with a leading rugby academy in South Africa and has developed with Glasgow Warriors under-18s.
Head coach Matt Corker said: “Being able to bring in a player of Nathan’s calibre is great for the squad.
“His experience will help us improve and having been lucky enough to play with him many times it is exciting to bring in such a great character.
“Dave Irvine, who has played 110 National 1 and National 2 games, made a great impression during his brief spell with us last season and has fitted into the squad right where he left off.”
Canterbury’s first home friendly is against National 1 Bishop’s Stortford on August 12.
