Yasawa flyers Kalione Nasoko and Eroni Sau have signed have signed two year deals with Scottish Pro 14 club Edinburgh.
28 year-old Fiji 7s captain Nasoko made his international sevens debut in 2016 and was named in the World Series dream team in his first two seasons on the circuit.
Nasoko said he was very excited by the opportunity to join Edinburgh and he can’t wait to join Viliame Mata at the club.
He said it’s a great opportunity for his family.
Edinburgh head coach Richard Cockerill said Nasoko is a tremendously exciting player who will predominantly play as a winger, but he has also played at 13.
Cockerill said Nasoko brings something different to our back-three and gives the team a little bit more of an x-factor.
Eroni Sau will also join the Edinburgh family and is excited by the opportunity and to test himself in the Guinness PRO14 and in Europe too.
Former England rep and Edinburgh coach Richard Cockerill said with “A nickname like ‘The Sledgehammer” it gives an idea of what Sau does with and without the ball.
Cockerill said they are delighted Sau chose to join Edinburgh and be part of what they’re building for next season and beyond.
