Halaifonua signs for Gloucester

Date published: December 5 2014

Gloucester have completed the signing of Tonga winger David Halaifonua subject to visa approval.

The Cherry & Whites have brought in the Tongan international as a replacement for Tom Isaacs, who joined the Cardiff Blues last week.

Halaifonua already knows Kingsholm a little, having played for his country against the USA at the ground last month, and Gloucester director of rugby David Humphreys was delighted with the signing.

“David will bring something different to what we already have,” Humphreys said.

“We’ve watched him for some time and obviously had the chance to see him first hand during Tonga’s recent internationals.

“We’re looking forward to welcoming him on board, adding more international quality to the squad and seeing him contribute for what is an exciting second half of the season.”
