Glasgow Warriors have secured the services of Fiji international hooker Mesu Dolokoto for next season on a two-year deal.

Dolokoto has played nine times for his country and is among the Fiji training squad named for World Cup preparations.

The 24-year-old will join the other new signings Andrew Davidson, Jamie Dobie, Charlie Capps and George Thornton at the Scotstoun ahead of the 2019/20 season and has experience of captaining Fiji A side in the past.

“I’m very happy to be joining Glasgow Warriors and I'm looking forward to playing in two of the best rugby competitions in the world," said Dolokoto, who will join the Warriors from Fijian Drua that went on to win the National Rugby Championship in Australia.

“The opportunity to learn from such an experienced coaching team and play in such a successful team is very exciting for me.

“The club has a strong Fijian history and I hope I can be a big part of it going forward.”

Glasgow Warriors Assistant Coach, John Dalziel said the addition of Dolokoto will add more depth to the squad.

“Mesu is an exciting talent who will bring even more international experience to our front-row," he added.

“He isn’t your traditional front-row forward, he likes to bring a bit of Fijian flair to his game, but he can also do the basics very well and we’re excited to work with him when he shows up following international duty.”
