Doge signed by French Top 14 club Brive

Flying Fijians tight-head prop Mesake Doge has been signed by Dragons club Brive in the French Top 14 for 2021-22.

Doge has won four Fiji caps and featured in their two recent games against New Zealand and with his tremendous performance, he stole the eyes of many.

The 28-year-old arrives at Rodney Parade with fellow prop Lloyd Fairbrother currently sidelined by injury.

Doge played regularly during two years at Brive, having previously played for the Romanian side Timisoara Saracens.

Dragons have not revealed the duration of Doge's contract.

Dragons rugby director Dean Ryan told BBC they are pleased to sign Mesake following an impressive performance in the recent Test series with the All Blacks and is determined to come to Wales and develop even further and make a big impression with the team.

Doge also said he is delighted to join Dragons.

“After speaking with Dean and the coaching team, I was very impressed with their vision for the region and their plans for my development," Doge said.

"To have the opportunity to compete against the very best in the United Rugby Championship and to be joining such a talented squad is truly a blessing."
