He continued: "I'm very positive about the move and am looking forward to my time here.
"I've heard alot the suport that USAP have and to walk out to that reception was very humbling, very overwhemling and im looking forwar do to playing in fornt of those fans.

And the player admitted the lure of the Heineken Cup was a factor in his decision. "It's a competiton I have watched and admired, and always wanted to be a part of. To play a few games in the European Cup really excites me."
Should Carter be selected, his Heineken Cup debut will come in Round 3, when his side are matched with Leicester at Welford Road on December 6.
