Pleased to welcome him, Coach Gavin Cattle said: “Through our links in New Zealand we received some really good feedback about Dan who has plied his trade mainly at Canterbury,”

“He can play both in the centre and on the wing, so provides not just experience but also versatility and we are therefore really glad to have him on board.”
