Exeter Chiefs have signed a new centre from Ulster Rugby.

Ireland As Paul McKenzie has joined the club with immediate effect to help ease the absences of injured Bryan Rennie and Mark Fatialofa.

Exeter Chiefs director of rugby Pete Drewett said today: We are lucky to have such a quality player come to join us. It will be a case of seeing whether he enjoys being at the club but the early signs are that he will be with us until the end of the season.

McKenzie has already played at Sandy Park in the 2007 Chuchill Cup tournament and grew up with Lewis Stevenson, John Andress and Gareth Steenson through the school system. He is an outside centre who can also play on the wing.

The 24-year-old said today: I was with Ulster and had not been getting much of an opportunity so I thought it was time to look elsewhere. My agent got in contact with Pete, we had a chat about things and they took a look at me.

I think I can come here and have something to contribute, but its only my second day of training today and I am not used to getting in the pool at 7am!

I would love to play as soon as possible but I know this is a winning team and so the coaches may not be too keen to play about with it but I will train hard and hopefully I will get my opportunity.
