The unbeaten Sables, hit by a series of forced absenteeism, have called the powerful 6ft 4 England-based Grogan to strengthen the second row of the team and boost line-out options.

Grogan was born in Zimbabwe, but left for the UK with his family when he was young.

Centre Saope Soko is another UK-based newcomer in the side. He starts on the bench. Old Georgians forward Takunda Kundishora could also make his Test debut off the bench.
