Vasiteri signs 1-year deal with Connacht

Fijian Drua and Nadroga centre Eroni Vasiteri has signed a one-year deal with Irish club Connacht.

The 28-year-old who was impressive in the first two rounds of the National Rugby Championship in Australia said he is looking forward to experiencing the Galway venue.

"I am hugely excited about this latest challenge in my career. I cannot wait to get over to Ireland and start training with my new teammates,” he told the club’s official website.

"The new Pro14 is an exciting competition and I can’t wait to line out for Connacht in the season ahead.”

"Connacht has a legendary support in the Sportsground and I look forward to representing the province."

Connacht Head Coach Kieran Keane said he is delighted to sign Vasiteri as he is a strong, physical player who will give them greater options for the season ahead in the Guinness Pro14 and European Challenge Cup.

"Eroni will integrate into the squad in the coming weeks and I’m sure he will get a massive reception from the Sportsground crowd."

Vasiteri has previously played for French Top 14 side Agen and was Nadroga Rugby Union’s Player of the Year for 2014.
