Ospreys snap up Fiji international
July 15, 2013
Ospreys have announced the signing of Fijian international Aisea Natoga.
The 22-year-old Natoga, who can play at centre, wing or fullback, has won five Test caps since making his debut against Georgia last November - most recently helping to steer Fiji to a first-ever IRB Pacific Nations Cup title.
Ospreys operations manager, Andy Lloyd, said that Natoga is an exciting signing with a bright future ahead of him: "European rugby has seen a number of Fijian players making a huge impact in recent seasons. It's clear that being in and around a professional environment where they get full nutritional and conditioning support helps them to really fulfil their explosive potential, as you'd expect.
"He fits what we are trying to do here as a team that remains ambitious to compete on all fronts. He adds another edge to our backline and gives us depth in key positions that we didn't have last season."
