Harlequins have agreed a deal to sign New Zealand-born prop Tim Fairbrother for next season.

The 29-year-old tighthead will make the move from Western Force at the end of the current season.

Fairbrother, who has previously played Super Rugby for the Hurricanes, has been on the fringes of the Australia squad after taking part in a number of Wallabies scrum sessions.

However he has been overlooked for the national side despite impressing with his work rate and leadership.

And Fairbrother is now looking to further his career in the Aviva Premiership with Quins.

"I have really enjoyed my time in Perth, it was the right decision for me to come across and I feel as though now is the right decision to test myself in another competition after nine seasons in Super Rugby," Fairbrother said.
