Fiji international Tevita Cavubati will continue to feature in the Premiership next season after he was signed by Harlequins.

Cavubati started his professional rugby stint with Tasman Makos in 2012 and had a brief stint with Ospreys before moving to Worcester Warriors in 2016. He made a switch to Newcastle Falcons in 2017 and with the Kingston Park outfit relegated at the end of the 2018/19 season, the 31-year-old has now headed to the Quins.

“I am really excited to be joining Harlequins. It is one of the biggest clubs in Rugby - I grew up in Fiji and I had heard of Harlequins and seen the jersey around the villages, so when I had the opportunity to come here, I was really happy," he told in a statement released by the club.

“I’ve come up against Harlequins a few times since moving to England. They have always been a very well-drilled side, but they’ve always had a bit of “razzle dazzle”, which I like. They are one of those teams that don’t stick to script in the way that others do and that’s why my eyes lit up when I heard that I had the chance to play here.

“Paul (Gustard) has a very good rugby brain and he is bringing together a really good group of players who I can’t wait to join. I couldn’t ask to be involved in a better Club.”

Cavubati has played for Fiji 23 times since his debut in 2011 and also played for them four times during the 2015 World Cup.
