GLASGOW WARRIORS are set to make a seventh summer signing with Fiji internationalist Nikola Matawalu ready to join subject to passing a medical and obtaining a work permit.
Matawalu, 23, has six caps for Fiji and the scrum-half is set to move to the Scotstoun from the Navy Rugby Club.
Warriors head coach Gregor Townsend said: "I'm delighted he's coming and he'll provide competition in the back line.
"Niko is quick, strong and is one of those types of players that can do the unexpected."
Matawalu will compete with the likes of Scotland's Chris Cusiter as well as Henry Pyrgos and Murray McConnell for the scrum-half position.
