Date published: May 12 2015

Toulouse have announced the signing of one of the top players on the international Sevens circuit, Fijian flyer Semi Kunatani.

24-year-old Kunatani is the second-highest try-scorer in this season's World Series with 37 touchdowns. He has inked a two-year deal for the 2015/2016 and 2016/2017 seasons in France.

He is the first new arrival announced ahead of next season by the four-time European champions.

The 1,92m, 98 kg Fijian is expected to feature in the Toulouse midfield.

"I love our fans Fijian and support, I love playing for Fiji, but I had to think about my future in rugby, and that it was best for my family and me," said Kunatani.

"Therefore I had to seize the opportunity that was offered me to play at the highest level with Toulouse."
