David Feao: Leicester Tigers sign Tonga prop forward

Leicester Tigers have signed Tonga prop David Feao.

The length of the deal is undisclosed and the 27-year-old moves to Welford Road from Narbonne, who finished bottom of the French second tier last season.

The Australia-born front row has also played for La Rochelle in France and represented Australia schoolboys before switching to Tonga.

His three Tonga caps all came as a replacement this summer against Georgia, Samoa and Fiji.

“David comes in with some good experience in Europe and we think he can continue to make good progress here,” Tigers head coach Matt O’Connor told the club website.

“He is a big, powerful man and we look forward to getting him to work in the build-up to the new season.”
