Jamie Cudmore looks destined to play his rugby in the French Pro D2 next season, as he announced he has signed for Top 14 side Oyonnax.

Clermont-Auvergne forward has signed a two-year deal with the relegation-bound side. 

"Very happy to have signed 2+2 years with OyyonaxRugby! A great project begins in 2016/17. A new adventure starts next year,” he posted on his official Twitter page.

Oyonnax are languishing at second bottom of the Top 14 on 19 points. Cudmore joined Clermont in 2005 and has been out of action since January with injury.

The 37-year-old’s contract includes the possibility of a two-year extension.
