South Wales sign Tongan international

South Wales Scorpions have signed Tongan international forward James Tutuila for 2013.

Tutuila, 22, made his international debut in Tonga‘s recent 28-20 win over USA, and has been playing for Souths Logan in the Australian Queensland Cup competition.

Scorpions’ coach Dave Clark said: “We are delighted to bring an international player of this calibre to the Scorpions. He will bring much needed strength and skill to our pack for 2013 as we know that we’re going to be in a very competitive and exciting Championship 1 competition.

“We have more players due to sign soon as we build a strong side ready for pre-season training in December.”

Famed for playing the full 80 minutes, he will arrive in Wales for pre-season training ahead of next season’s Championship 1 campaign.
