Kenyan rugby player Daniel Adongo has signed with Counties Manukau for this year's domestic competition.

The 23-year-old dubbed the Man Mountain, has been based at Pretoria with the Blue Bulls Currie Cup team since 2011.

The 113-kilogramme, 1.98 metre forward can play lock, flanker and number eight but he's been signed as a lock by Counties coach Tana Umaga.

Adongo is expected to arrive in New Zealand in two weeks.
