Exeter have signed Kiwi lock Romana Graham from Waikato Chiefs.
The 6'7" second row, who has played for the Chiefs for the last five years, becomes Exeter's seventh signing of the summer.
"I'll be honest I didn't know too much about Exeter or the club before I came over here, but ever since we've sorted the move I've been looking on the computer at a few highlights and looking up things around the area and it all looks a pretty exciting place," he told the club's website.
"Right now, though, I just want to get myself up and running and involved with the team. Coming over here, as I said, is a whole new challenge for me, but I think it will be good for my game.
"Obviously I want to try and improve my game a lot more whilst I'm here, but at the same time I also want to help the club and the team all I can.
"The style of game over here is definitely a bit different to that of back home, but I'm looking forward to getting stuck into it all.
"I've watched some highlights of games and there are some big boys over here. It's more forward orientated for sure, but I'm not going to complain about that too much, I just want to get stuck into the action."
