The Hurricanes have added Manawatu hooker Rob Foreman to their squad in South Africa.

Foreman, 28, will fly to the Republic tomorrow to join the team ahead of their match against the Bulls in Pretoria on Sunday (NZT) following injuries to Motu Matu'u and Dane Coles.

Matu'u broke his forearm in the narrow defeat by the Stormers in Palmerston North on Friday night, with Coles still out with a fractured cheekbone. Ash Dixon is the team's only specialist hooker in South Africa.
