Gloucester Rugby have announced the signing of Fijian international Albert Tuisue ahead of the 2022/23 season.

Tuisue played in the Shute Shield and the NRC before joining Fijian Drua and went on to win the title with them in 2018. He made a switch to London Irish in 2019 making 24 appearances and scoring 8 tries in the 2019/20 season and overall has more than 50 apperances for the club.

The 28-year-old's international debut for Fiji came in June 2018 against Tonga and has 11 Test caps to his name.

“We are hugely excited that Albert has opted to join us at Kingsholm," said head coach George Skivington to the club's official website.

“He’s renowned for his physical presence on the field and explosive ball carrying, but ultimately he’s a player that gives everything for the cause, which is the exactly the kind of characters that we want representing this Club.

“I know he will be determined to finish off his season in style, and we look forward to welcoming him on our journey in the summer.”

Gloucester are positioned fourth in the Gallagher Premiership table with seven wins from 12 matches and are at second place in Pool B of the European Challenge Cup with a solitary victory from two matches.
