Harlequins have confirmed that Samoan international hooker Elia Elia has joined the club on a short term contact with immediate effect.

The 20-year-old former Crusaders development squad member has been capped three times by Samoa.

Commenting on the news, Harlequins Director of Rugby John Kingston said: “As things stand within our squad, we have one or two injuries in the hooker position. For this reason we have brought in Elia Elia as cover for us on a short term contract.

“He is a player who came on to our radar when we trained with Samoa recently.

“I’m delighted that he has taken the opportunity to join up with our squad and I’m sure he will make a valuable impact.”
