Harlequins has announced that Fijian Olympic Games gold medal winner, Semi Kunatani has joined the club.
The 27-year-old joins the west London club from Toulouse where he has been based since the start of the 2015/16 season.
Commenting on the signing, Harlequins Head of Rugby Paul Gustard said delighted to welcome Semi to the club.
“I am delighted to welcome Semi to the club. He is a precocious talent and someone I have been watching for a considerable time. I am confident that our exceptional supporters will relish watching him play and give him their support as he embarks on the next stage of his young career."
“Semi offers us something completely different to our other back row brothers and given the attritional nature of the playing position and impending international call-ups, his signing gives us much needed depth and adds further quality to the squad."
Speaking on his arrival from France, Semi Kunatani said he is excited about joining the club.
“I’m excited about joining Harlequins at the start of this new era for the club and looking forward to playing at The Stoop. The club has many top players and this is a great opportunity for me to play with them and contribute to a successful team.”
