London Irish have confirmed the signing of Fiji international prop Jerry Yanuyanutawa.
The 27-year-old has joined the Exiles after a two-year spell in Super Rugby with the Brumbies.
Previously a back-rower, Yanuyanutawa switched to prop on the advice of former England prop Trevor Woodman - a Rugby World Cup-winner in 2003 - while at Sydney University and made his Test bow in this year's Pacific Nations Cup.
"Jerry has a solid set piece game and is a fantastic ball carrier," Exiles boss Brian Smith said. "He will give us another option up front which is crucial during a long and arduous season."
