London Irish has announced the signings of Fiji Airways Flying Fijians duo Albert Tuisue and Alivereti Veitokani.

Both players were part of the Flying Fijians squad for the Europe tour which included wins over France and Uruguay.

Tuisue a 25-year-old, can play in both the second and back rows, while 25-year-old fly half Veitokani was the standout performer in the 2018 National Rugby Championship in Australia, winning the tournament’s Rising Star Award.

London Irish Director of Rugby Declan Kidney says that both players have the ability to succeed in English rugby, but that they also have plenty of room for improvement.
