Fijian powerhouse King Vuniyayawa has had his visa approved ahead of his move to Leeds.

The 25-year-old has joined the Rhinos on a one-year contract following a season in the NRL with New Zealand Warriors, where he made five appearances.

Vuniyayawa has earned three caps for his native Fiji and will be looking to represent his country at the World Cup this autumn.

The forward has received his visa clearance to join Leeds and is expected to arrive in the UK within the next fortnight depending on the relevant testing protocol and flight arrangements.
