Leinster Rugby have announced the signing of New Zealand Maori prop Clint Newland who has joined the province on a short-term deal until February.

Thirty year old Newland has amassed a wealth of experience having featured for Hawke’s Bay 94 times in the NPC (since his debut in 1999) and in 24 games for the Highlanders in Super Rugby since 2008.

Newland is immediately available for selection after arriving in Ireland on Tuesday and could feature in the team that will be announced on Friday around lunchtime.

Commenting on Newland’s arrival, Leinster Forwards Coach Jono Gibbes said: “We’re pleased to sign Clint and he will add experience to the group in place of the injured Stan Wright who, in recent seasons, has been the scrum leader in the Leinster pack.”
