Somerset Rebels have signed Joe Haines as a replacement for the injured Christian Hefenbrock.

The 19-year-old, who became the British under-21 champion in 2010, was released by Scunthorpe earlier this week.

"We got the nod early on Tuesday morning about Joe leaving Scunthorpe and by the afternoon we had agreed terms," said promoter Debbie Hancock.

Haines will make his debut alongside fellow new arrival Anders Mellgren in Friday's meeting against Plymouth.
