6 January, 2017. UK Premiership club Saracens have signed Tonga international Sione Vailanu on a deal until the summer of 2019.
The 22-year-old back-row forward, who is predominantly a number eight, made his international debut against Japan in November.
Vailanu has spent the past four years playing sevens in Japan.
"It's a really good place for me to start my career in England and hopefully I can create some memories," he told the club website.
