The Halifax Blue Sox have completed their overseas quota allowance for the 2007 by completing the signing of Aaron Trinder.

The former North Sydney forward has signed a one year deal. Trinder is 26 years old, who spent two years with NRL giants Manly Sea Eagles, and will no doubt add a wealth of power and experience to the pack.

Coach Martin Hall said: "Aaron is a big, bustling, aggressive prop forward who will bring something different to the squad,"

"He carries the ball very strongly, hits hard in defence and judging by the number of matches he played this year he is also very durable, which is important for us.

"He has just missed out on NRL deals a couple of times in his career and he is very keen to improve himself. The lad is excited about joining us and we are excited about working with him."

With numerous forwards already signed, Hall believes that any future signings will primarily be focussed on the backline.

"It would be nice to get another half back in, even though we obviously have several players who can operate in those positions," said Hall. "If we can do that, and potentially add a bit of quality to the three quarters too, then I don't think we will be too far away."
