I found this Skype interview with him. Quality isn't great, but is does sound like he is here for longer than just this season. Cockers has told him 'his time will come'.

Has anyone actually seen him play? What's he like?

Not sure if I'm glad we've got a seven in, we certainly need a specialist for squad depth but I was hoping Tom Armes would step up and that Woods would regain form and fitness. Those two along with Newby would have given us plenty of options whilst England under 20 Everard could go out on loan to Notts for a year or two.

Saw him play a few times for Western Province, solid, reliable but didn't think he would develop into anything special. Very much third choice at that time. Hopefully I am wrong. Not sure where he will fit into the Tiger's setup.

Seen him play in a couple of LV cup games - okay we got hammered, so perhaps not the best time to see him play, but others around him stood out for me as playing a lot better - Everard being but one.

So, not convinced we need to spend (salary) money on him....

He played well on Monday in the "A" game, seemed to be playing well and a few of us commentated on his involvement at the breakdown.
Liken to a young Luke Abraham (not just in appearance!), but if he can get more game time then expect to see him around for a while folks.
And on the 7th day, god rested, he stood patiently and awaited the green light to start the game from SKY!
