Crusaders sign Spanish union star



Crusaders sign Spanish union star
Celtic Crusaders have signed Spanish rugby union international David Mota.
The 19-year-old centre, an architecture student in Madrid, travels to Wales this week to train ahead of Saturday's Challenge Cup tie at Rochdale Hornets.

"I've worked with David in the Spanish squad for some time," said Crusaders chief executive Chris O'Callaghan.

"He is an immense talent. How he hasn't been picked up by some of the Guinness Premiership sides is beyond me, but their loss is our gain."

He's already been given the name 'Dai Motor' by the backroom staff

Mota has a limited background in the 13-man format.

"David has been watching Super League in the Haka bar in Madrid which is run by one of his Spanish international colleagues," said O'Callaghan.

"He's already been given the name 'Dai Motor' by the backroom staff and I'm now trying to persuade the Welsh Rugby League that he's Welsh!

"I made up a story that his grandfather was a Welsh miner who fought in the Spanish Civil War and opened up a garage in Madrid.

"The locals knew him as Dai the Motor and his surname got changed to the Spanish version!"
How.. unprofessional. Is he converting to rugby league or is it just for the challenge cup?

Shake and make up?
