Ofa Fainga'anuku: Will team up with Glasgow on a short-term deal
Glasgow Warriors have signed Tonga prop Ofa Fainga'anuku on a short-term deal.
The RaboDirect PRO12 side have lost Jon Welsh (shoulder) and Ed Kalman (back) to injuries so they have turned to Fainga'anuku, who has two Tonga caps and has played for the Waratahs.
Warriors boss Gregor Townsend told the club's official site: "We're very pleased to have signed Ofa Fainga'anuku and look forward to welcoming him to Glasgow in due course.
"We're delighted to be able to bring on board a man with Test experience to give more depth in an area where we have two long-term injuries.
"Having spoken to coaches who have worked with him, and studied his game on video, it's obvious that Ofa is a quality scrummager and tackler who works hard around the pitch.
"We'll be giving him the necessary support to settle in quickly and hit the ground running in what is a very important phase of the season."
