Glasgow Warriors today announced the signing of Fijian international scrum-half Nikola Matawalu.
Matawalu joins from the Navy Rugby Club in Suva, subject to a work permit and medical.
The lightning quick No.9 has made six appearances for the Fijian national side, scoring on his debut against Japan in 2010.
The 23-year-old has already faced a number of his new colleagues at international level and was the pick of the Fijian national side which played Scotland on their recent summer tour.
Warriors head coach Gregor Townsend said: "Niko is a really exciting signing for us. He's quick, strong and is one of those types of players that can do something a bit different, the unexpected.
"To be named player-of-the-tournament at this year's Hong Kong 7s underlines what a special talent we have joining the club.
"He'll provide some serious competition in the back line.
"He was hugely impressive in the Test match in Lautoka and really caught the eye and I think the Warriors fans will really take to his style of play."
Matawalu said: "Obviously it's going to be a massive change from playing in the Southern Hemisphere but I'm really looking forward to the challenge.
"The quality of the squad – a lot of the guys I played against in the Scotland match last month – is really impressive and I hope I can add to that."
