"Sawbo offered him good money to go there, but he wanted to join us which says a lot about the club and the way we are going.
"He is 6ft 2in, quick, good in the air and holds the ball up and brings others into it.
"He had a good game on Saturday and all of the committee raved about him afterwards. He certainly did his job on his debut.
"He is here for an initial six weeks, but I'm hoping to keep him permanently. I hope he will enjoy it and want to stay.
