Broncos Coach Kevin Walters said:
“David has really good experience, both here and overseas. He’s played international football. We feel we’ve got a lot of good, young players coming through and David is one of those players who can help nurture their training habits, their playing habits. “He’s a very experienced player and we’re very happy to have him on board.”
