Exiles confirm Sa deal
Aviva Premiership outfit London Irish have revealed they have signed Catalans Dragons' Setaimata Sa who will join the club next season.
The Samoa-born star, who has scored 10 tries in 39 appearances for the French Super League outfit, is set to make the switch to the 15-man form of the game at the end of the rugby league season.
Sa has joined the Exiles on a three-year deal, as Irish hope to add strength to their squad which missed out on the Aviva Premiership play-offs this term.
The 24-year-old has played in the centres and second row for Catalans and now Exiles director of rugby Brian Smith is looking forward to having the Kiwi international at the Madejski next season.
He told BBC Berkshire: "He's a wonderful player, he grew up in Christchurch so he's got a rugby background.
"He's had three seasons in the NRL, three seasons in the Super League, he's the real deal, an offloading machine.
"He's six feet three, 105 kilograms. There's no doubt about it, Setaimata is an exciting and wonderfully skillful player and we're delighted that he will be joining the squad next season."
