CONNACHT HAVE STRENGTHENED their backline resources with the signing of Fijian international Eroni Vasiteri Narumasa on a one-year deal with the option of a further year.

The 28-year-old centre joins the western province from National Rugby Championship side Fijian Drua and will bolster Kieran Keane’s options after Peter Robb was ruled out until December.

Narumasa, who has made four international appearances for Fiji, previously played in the French Top 14 with Agen and should be available to Connacht in the coming weeks.

“I am delighted to announce that we are adding Eroni Vasiteri to our squad,” Keane said.

“Eroni is a strong, physical player who will give us greater options for the season ahead in the Guinness Pro14 and European Challenge Cup. Eroni will integrate into the squad in the coming weeks and I’m sure he will get a massive reception from the Sportsground crowd.”

Commenting on his signing for Connacht, the player added: “I am hugely excited about this latest challenge in my career. I cannot wait to get over to Ireland and start training with my new teammates. The new Guinness Pro14 Championship is an exciting competition and I can’t wait to line out for Connacht in the season ahead. Connacht has a legendary support in the Sportsground and I look forward to representing the province.”
