North Wales Crusaders have signed former Super League and NRL winger Patrick Ah Van for the 2021 season.

The 33-year-old came through the ranks at NRL club New Zealand Warriors before spells with Bradford Bulls and Widnes Vikings.

Auckland-born Ah Van has represented Samoa and has more recently been with French club Villegailhenc-Aragon.

“I want to get out there, do my best and give a lending ear if someone wants to learn,” Ah Van said.

“If I can teach them anything, I’ll try my best.”

Wrexham-based Crusaders will begin their pre-season campaign against fellow League 1 club Hunslet on Sunday, 18 April.
