Biography - Shaun Malton

The 22-year-old has penned a deal with Nottingham Rugby until the end of the 2012/13 RFU Championship season.

He joins the Green and Whites from Premiership side London Irish, having completed a short-term contract with the club at the start of November.

The former Sharks under-21 Currie Cup captain, and young Springbok and South African schoolboys representative made one substitute appearance for Exiles in the Premiership before moving to the East Midlands.

Malton was brought straight into Nottingham's match day 22 to travel to Kingston Park for the top of the table meeting on Friday November 4.

Haag is pleased with how Malton has seamlessly gelled with the side.

"Shaun has fitted in great and comes to us in great shape," Haag said.

"It will take a while for him to get used to our systems, but ultimately he is the type of player we are looking for going forward, he is match fit, got great skills and had a good character.

"It makes competition for that hooker's position really intense with Joe Duffey, Scott Wright and Ollie Taylor all there."
