Bears sign Zach Johnson
We are very happy to announce the signing of Prop forward Zach Johnson.
Bears Tom Tsang commented on signing Zach;
"Prop forward Zach is a massive signing for us - in all meanings of the word. At 6'3" and 120kg, he is the biggest of what is already a big pack at the Bears and with Championship experience for Dewsbury and Swinton he is set for a big year. He has already shown glimpses of what he can do at training with his size and power but it is leadership qualities that stand out most - he is a loud and vocal player who gets the players around him fired up. I’m particularly excited to see him in action alongside our other forwards and watching our talented hookers play off the quick ball they should provide."
Zach spoke about signing for the Bears;
"Really looking forward to coming to the bears and being part of something relatively new, and successful. For me this year it's about getting a big season in, and getting back to doing what I do as the last 2 years have had their draw backs. I'm confident I'll definitely add something different to the bears which the fans will enjoy. The club have been great with me so far and have really welcomed me with open arms, the club and the lads included "
