Blues and Samoa lock Filo Paulo is joining Cardiff Blues.
Paulo, 25, who can also play blindside flanker, has played 26 Super Rugby matches for the Blues. He returns to Europe having played two matches for Ulster in 2009.
"I am very excited to be joining Cardiff Blues," Paulo said. "I know a lot of great players have worn the team's colours so I am extremely grateful to be offered this opportunity and I will be giving my all in order to meet the high standards set by my team-mates, the coaching staff and the supporters."
Cardiff director of rugby Phil Davies said: "He will definitely add value to the current crop of back five players for us. He will be with us all the time, week in week out, and we have four other second rows who are all Welsh-qualified. His arrival will add strength and depth to the team."
