Cornish Pirates have signed Scottish scrum-half Greg Goodfellow for the remainder of the the season.

Goodfellow has been brought in to provide extra cover for current number nine's Gavin Cattle and James Doherty.

During his playing career, the 24-year-old has appeared for Hawick, Mounts Bay and, most recently, Coventry.

Pirates chief executive Rod Coward said: "Greg has been training with the Pirates and sufficiently impressed to be given a playing contract."

He added: "The intention is that he will continue to train with us, but be loaned to Redruth to ensure he gets game time and will be called back should he be required to play for Cornish Pirates.

"If Greg continues to develop it is likely he will be offered a further contract next season."

Goodfellow has also won age-grade honours for Scotland, appearing at all levels from Under-18 through to Under-21s.
