Faan joined London Irish from Western Province in September 2005 and played a key role in the improvement of the forwards, in particular the front row, in his first season.
Rautenbach began his career as a hooker before switching to prop when he joined South Africa's A tour to Europe in 2001. He has since established himself as one of the leading props playing in the Super 12 and Currie Cup competitions and for the Springboks.
With 14 caps for the Springboks, including the 2003 Rugby World Cup, and ten in the Super 12/14 tournament, Faan is an experienced, international prop whose technique and strength is respected by his peers.
Injury restricted his appearances for the Exiles last season, however, he is fully fit and looking forward to adding to the 59 appearances he has made for the club.
