Shortland joins Newcastle

Newcastle have announced the signing of centre Ryan Shortland from New Zealand provincial side Otago.

Shortland, 29, who is English-qualified, switched codes in 2008 after stints with rugby league clubs Melbourne Storm and New Zealand Warriors.

Newcastle head coach Alan Tait said: "He has been scoring tries for the (New South Wales) Waratahs A team, and he has recently been training with their first team. He is also English-qualified, which is great. He runs hard, he is strong and is a great signing for the club."
