London Irish announce another new signing

FIJIAN international Asaeli Tikoirotuma is the latest player to sign for London Irish ahead of the 2015/16 Aviva Premiership season.

Comfortable operating at centre or on the wing Tikoirotuma previously won two Super Rugby titles with the Chiefs before joining Harlequins.

London Irish Operations Director is encouraged that the Exiles have captured Tikoirotuma.

“Asaeli is a quality player and a real game breaker. He brings a lot of experience with him, in Super Rugby, the Premiership and at international level,” Casey said.

“Both Tom Coventry and Matt Symons have spoken very highly of him and we are all looking forward to him being part of the squad next season.”

Asaeli Tikoirotuma is enthusiastic about the prospect of playing for London Irish. “I am really looking forward to starting at London Irish.

“Having spoken to the management it is clear that London Irish is a family club and they have core values that really resound with me. The club is also very ambitious and heading in an exciting direction.

“I have worked with Tom Coventry before and he is a great coach, I can’t wait to work with him again at London Irish next season.”

Harlequins Director of Rugby Conor O’Shea said:   “We are all grateful for Tiks' contribution to us this season; his try during our win over Leinster at The Stoop in December will live long in the memory. I know he is looking forward to linking up with his old coach Tom Coventry. He and his family move with our best wishes."
