All Golds sign Scorpions pair

Gloucestershire All Golds have signed James Tutuila and Ashley Bateman from Championship 1 rivals South Wales Scorpions.

Both players have international pedigree, with Tonga and Wales respectively, but aren’t featuring in the ongoing World Cup.

Tutuila played for Easts Tigers and Souths Logan in the Queensland Cup, while Bateman has played in Super League for Crusaders.

All Golds coach Brad Hepi said: “Last year, James Tutuila was a handful for our defence. Every time he got the ball he constantly broke our line, got in behind our line. He also banged us in defence, which is exactly what I want from the guys this year.

Ashley Bateman is exactly the type of aggressive competitor that I want the team next year to epitomise. He has a never say die attitude and is up for the fight.”
