Nadolo a valuable addition: Gordon

Waratahs captain Jake Gordon says the exceptional talent and unique threats of Nemani Nadolo will be a valuable addition to the franchise.
 
The 125kg Fijian winger will return to the Waratahs from Leicester on a one-year deal, 15 years after he first joined the Tahs as a talented youngster.
 
Speaking to reporters in Argentina, where he is on tour with the Wallabies, Gordon said Nadolo’s contribution would be immense.
 
"He is obviously a real threat with the ball and I have seen some of the stuff he has done for Leicester, he has been exceptional," Gordon said.
 
"He is really dangerous one on- ne and he will be a great inclusion to our back line. I am really excited to see him with the group."
 
"We have formed some great competition (in the back three). We have obviously lost Alex Newsome, who was the spine of our back line, but we pick up a guy with international experience and who can probably cover a few positions if needs be. And you are seeing guys like Dylan Pietsch and Mark Nawaqanitawase really stepping up ... so it’s pleasing to see our depth in the back line is really starting to develop."
 
Nadolo had a further year left on his Tigers contract but negotiated a release to come back to Australia.
 
He is set to play the first few months of the English Premiership season with Leicester before joining NSW for pre-season in December.
