Asaeli Tikoirotuma: Heading to Quins?

According to media reports, Harlequins have signed Marland Yarde from London Irish and Asaeli Tikoirotuma from the Chiefs.

Fairfax NZ News reports that Fijian international Tikoirotuma, who won back-to-back Super Rugby titles with the Chiefs, has inked a two-year deal with the London club.

"'Tiks' is a player who we really recognise as having huge value," said former All Blacks assistant coach Wayne Smith, who is now at the Chiefs.

"For me, system-wise, I think he's the best defensive winger in the country. He understands the game...understands how to cover their plays from the wing."

Meanwhile, the Daily Mail reports that 21-year-old England wing Marland Yarde's long-rumoured move to the Stoop has been sealed.
