Welsh international Christiaan Roets has retured to the South Wales Scorpions after four years away at North Wales Crusaders.
The 35 year-old is Wales‘ second highest tryscorer with 13 tries in 21 games and has returned to the club he was once a founder player when the Scorpions first started.
Roets has already expressed his delight at rejoining the club, but was quick to thank the Crusaders for his time at the club.
“I would like to thank all the Crusaders fans for all the support and dedication they showed and still show to the team, and I hope this dedication will continue,” he said.
“I will surely see many of you again later in the season and I hope for a great contest when the two clubs meet at Cardiff Arms Park on Saturday 5th June.
Scorpions head coach Phil Carleton says that the signing of Roets is brilliant for the club and looks forward to working with him.
“I’m obviously really excited to have Roetsy coming on board,” Carleton said.
“I know a lot of clubs, if not all in our league, would like to have a player of his quality in their side. In the past, South Wales Scorpions have signed some big name players. For me, Christiaan is up there with the biggest catches we’ve ever made.”
