Fijian tighthead off to Toulouse

Date published: October 25 2015

Toulouse have confirmed the signing of Fijian international prop Manasa Saulo on a two-year deal from next season.

Saulo was one of the standout players for Fiji as their much-improved scrum caused England, Wales and Australia problems in Pool A.

However he was suspended for the final game of the tournament after being found guilty of stamping, and is currently serving a ten-week ban.

He will arrive from Romanian club Timisoara Saracens next July and joins Census Johnston and Dorian Aldegheri as Toulouse's tighthead options for next year.

Sporting director Fabien Pelous confirmed the signing after Toulouse's game against Bordeaux-Bègles on Saturday.
