Hemel Stags have signed Greek trialist Stefanos Bastas to a contract.
Director or rugby Dean Thomas said: “We’ve been really pleased with Stefanos’ progress so he will be signing for the club.
“He’s a big strong frontrower and will hopefully make a real impact for us. He’s a really good, honest guy who is great to have around.”
The club have also signed ex- Bradford Bulls Academy centre Brad Adams.
Thomas said: “Brad has just returned from a couple of years playing in Australia and there were a few clubs chasing him but we managed to snap him up.
“We’re also sorting out our loose-forward options and are looking at re-signing Corey Hanson, a mobile player with good handling skills.”
