Berquist off to Leinster

10:47 am on 29 March 2011

The Crusaders backup first five Matt Berquist has signed to play for the Irish rugby club Leinster.

27-year-old Berquist has signed a one year deal, with an option to extend.

He says he's always been keen to test himself in Europe and with Leinster having a strong reputation in New Zealand he's excited by the opportunity to test himself in a new environment.

Leinster have also signed Sharks lock Steven Sykes.
