Grant, 26, is a former New Zealand Sevens international and formerly played for and captained Otago in his homeland.  Standing at six foot four inches and weighing 108kg, Grant will increase the physicality in the Green and Whites back row while adding strong ball carrying skills in the loose.

Nottingham Head Coach Martin Haag said, "I'm delighted that Paul has agreed to join us next season.  He is an excellent number 8 who will add a lot to the present squad.  He is an excellent leader as he demonstrated as captain of Otago.

"He's a very strong ball carrier and has previous experience of linking up with Sean Romans as they were both at Otago together.  He's had a strong season with Montpellier and I'm delighted to be able to bring in a player of his quality and that he's decided to be part of the Nottingham Rugby journey."

Grant is the third new signing announced head of next season following the news that Dan Mugford and Viliame Iongi have agreed to join Nottingham.

These signings, alongside a number of new deals for current squad members, including Tom Calladine and Rupert Cooper, have been well received by fans of the club as they look forward to an improved showing in the league next season.
