"I'm really excited to be joining Dean Ryan's squad and a very competitive Warriors side back in the Premiership," said please second-row Cavubati.

"It will be great to follow up the high-level intensity of the Rugby World Cup and to move straight into a Warriors team with a passionate fan base.

"I can't wait to meet everyone at the club after the World Cup." 

Director of rugby Ryan said: "Tevita will provide international experience and physicality in a key area.

"His time playing at the top level will only be beneficial to our young squad as we embark on our Aviva Premiership challenge.

"We're looking forward to seeing him test himself against the world's best over the next few weeks and wish him all the best at the World Cup."
